Mental Health First Aid Training

Promoting mental health awareness in the
workplace and the community

Mental health is a growing concern in Australia with one in five Australians experiencing a mental illness each year. Having the skills to support people developing a mental health problem or going through a mental health crisis can make all the difference.

What is Mental Health First Aid Training?

A Mental Health First Aid course teaches you basic first aid skills to help someone who’s struggling with a mental health issue or going through a mental health crisis to find the right support. These valuable life skills can be used at home, with friends or in the workplace.

Put simply, it’s like providing physical first aid to a person who’s broken their leg or injured their arm. The goal is to help the person find the right professional support so they can start their road to recovery. It’s not your job to fix the injury or solve the person’s problems.
