MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING – Full day sessions (one week apart)

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis (eg. the person is suicidal or has had a traumatic experience).  Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training courses authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and delivered by accredited MHFA Instructors across the country.  Robinvale District Health Services offers the Standard MHFA course as authored by MHFA Australia, delivered by Instructors who are currently accredited by MHFA Australia.

12-hour Standard MHFA course

The 12-hour Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.
