MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (MHFA) TRAINING

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  Mental Health First Aid is the help provided before appropriate professional help can be obtained.
Mental Health First Aid training increases knowledge and awareness about mental health, reduces stigma and, most importantly, increases supportive actions.
Greg Seberry is accredited to deliver Mental Health First Aid training.

Mental Health First Aid Training teaches participants:

  • How to recognise the cluster of symptoms of different mental health problems, illnesses and mental health crises.
  • How to provide initial help and support to a person with a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
  • How to guide a person towards accessing appropriate professional treatments and other help.

Who can attend Mental Health First Aid Training?

Our MHFA course is open to anyone with an interest in learning more about mental health and supporting people with mental health problems.
There are no course prerequisites or assumed knowledge requirements.
Our MHFA course is presented in a relaxed, engaging and non-threatening delivery format.
Our course has a workplace focus, but is also relevant to broader community and family contexts.
