Blended Online MHFA Community Course

From $279pp


Around 1 in 5 Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Understanding how to talk about mental health and help someone in need are important skills. Many people feel uncomfortable and unprepared when thinking about starting a conversation with someone they are concerned about.

During a Mental Health First Aid® (MHFATM) course, participants will learn how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and learn the skills to feel confident and be able to help.

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 in your community.

Mental Health First Aid courses are facilitated by skilled instructors trained and licenced by MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID AUSTRALIA.

Course Overview

Course participants are required to complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component that teaches them about mental health problems, mental health crises, and skills to offer initial help to an adult developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.

On completion of the eLearning, participants will be required to complete 2 x 2.5 hour webinar sessions that will be delivered by a licenced Mental Health First Aid instructor via videoconferencing and will allow participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate knowledge and skills in a group environment, and to apply their skills to specific scenarios.

Please note: The videoconferencing component must be completed within 3 months of completing the initial eLearning component. If you already have an eLearning voucher from Mental Health First Aid Australia, please contact us on 1300 785 646 to book your course.


Accredited Mental Health First AiderTM

Participants who satisfactorily complete the online assessment will receive a Certificate of Accreditation from Mental Health First Aid Australia, valid for three years.

Note, this is an education course designed to teach people the skills to give first aid to others, it is not a therapy or support group.
