Mental Health First Aid
MHFA is an evidence-based course that will teach you the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, and how to provide first aid in a crisis.
One in five Australians aged 16-84 experience the symptoms of mental illness every year.
We are working towards a world where everyone has the first aid skills to support people with mental health problems.
MHFA will teach you the skills of how to assist an adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based action plan.
Participants will receive a Mental Health First Aid manual to keep as a recourse and a Certificate of Completion.
*Please be aware this is an education course, to learn how to give first aid to others, and is not a therapy or support group.
