Anyone can have a conversation that could save a life. Everyone should know how.
The Standard Mental Health First Aid® (MHFA™) course equips adults with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to recognise, understand and respond to a friend, family member, co-worker or another adult experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis.
Just like a medical first aid course, you will learn how to provide initial support to another adult until professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
What will I learn in a Standard Mental Health First Aid course?
The course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals. It provides an overview of mental illnesses, risk factors, prevalence, and impact before taking a much closer look at the following mental health problems:
- Substance use problems
- Anxiety (including panic attacks)
- Bipolar disorder
