About Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial assistance given to an individual in a mental health crisis or with a mental health problem. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

This course teaches adults how to provide initial support to other adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Participants in MHFA will be educated on the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, as well as how, what, when and where to administer first aid in a crisis-situation for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use disorder

Crisis situations covered are suicidal thoughts and behaviours, non-suicidal self-injury, panic attacks, traumatic events, acute psychotic behaviour, aggressive behaviour and severe effects of substance abuse.

From MHFA training, students learn; effective mental health awareness and literacy, and early intervention strategies. This course provides participants with the skills to recognise a mental health crisis, respond appropriately and support the individual to recover through positive health and return-to-work outcomes.

Please Note: Course content can affect some people who have or are experiencing a mental health problem. The course is not recommended for people seeking treatment or recovering from a mental health problem.
