Mental Health First Aid Online Training

Online community training on how to help someone experiencing a mental health problem or crisis

This is an open online training. You can book as an individual employee or as a team.

Mental illness does not discriminate and those affected come from diverse backgrounds, live in every community, attend local schools, are employed in every workplace and are at different ages and stages of life.

Mental health first aid (MHFA) is the initial help offered to someone who is experiencing a mental health problem or a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

What you'll learn

Mental Health First Aid training equips people with the knowledge and confidence to approach or respond to family members, friends, co-workers or others in the community who may need information or support. The impact of that first supportive conversation for an individual in a time of need can be profound.

  • intervene early and recognise the warning signs of mental health problems
  • learn skills needed to speak openly and accurately about mental health
  • respond in crisis situations where a person may be at risk of harm
  • reduce stigma and increase support for people with mental health problems
