Each year 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness.
Many people are not knowledgeable or confident to offer assistance. Physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community, however, most do not cover mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they're concerned about.
Approximately 20% of Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Completing an MHFA Course will help you to develop the skills to support a friend, family member or co-worker.
Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and make a real difference to your community.
If you complete the Mental Health First Aid Course, you will learn the knowledge and skills to offer first aid for a mental health problem. The course is evidence based and is continually going through a process of evaluation.
