Mental Health First Aid Australia Courses
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.
We are accredited Mental Health First Aid Australia course instructors. Through these courses, you will learn the knowledge and skills to offer first aid for mental health problems.
