Standard Mental Health First Aid
About 1 in 5 Australian adults experience a mental illness each year.
The 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course teaches any adult (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to someone who is experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. MHFA courses are based on evidence of what is best practice mental health first aid to support someone who has a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis.
Learn how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health problem or a mental health crisis.
Learn about the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation
Sometimes these symptoms can present themselves through uncharacteristic behaviours. Once recognised, it is important to understand what you can do to help, particularly if you have limited experience, confidence or don’t quite know how to access the support services available to you and to them. Participating in the course will enable you to respond to behaviours and seek further assistance if required.
The 12-hours training course can be delivered in 1 of 3 ways:
Face-to-face: a 2-day Instructor led session.
Blended Face-to-face: Self‑paced eLearning followed by a 4-hour face‑to-face Instructor led session
Blended Online: Self-paced eLearning followed by a 2 x 2.5‑hour Instructor led video conferencing sessions
