Understanding how to talk about mental health and help someone in need are important skills.
Around 1 in 5 Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Many people feel uncomfortable and unprepared when thinking about starting a conversation with someone they are concerned about.
During a MHFA course, participants will learn how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and learn the skills to feel confident and 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 to your community.

You will 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, how to assist an adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
During the course, participants have the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe environment, working face-to-face with a Licensed Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Instructor.
