Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves. MHFA strategies are taught in evidence-based training programs authored by the Mental Health First Aid Australia and conducted by accredited MHFA Instructors.
The standard MHFA course teaches the program participants how to assist someone who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help is required.
