Research tells us that 20% of Australians aged over 16 will experience a diagnosable mental illness each year. That nearly 50% of the population will experience an episode during their lifetime.

With growing concerns around the catastrophic events like the bushfires and now the pandemic, as a community, we must learn how to effectively and quickly support one another.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence-based training course, which gives participants the skills and confidence to have supportive conversations with their friends, family, co-workers, and community.

The training outcomes are:

  • Increased mental health literacy

  • Increased confidence in providing initial support

  • Decreased stimatising, isolating attitudes

  • Increased help provided to others

  • Confidence to encourage access to appropriate professional help.

 

MHFA is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.
