Mental Health First Aid Course Information

Welcome to the First Nationally Recognised Course in Mental Health Support for First Responders. This course is uniquely tailored to provide comprehensive education on mental health, fostering resilience and offering practical strategies for managing the mental health impacts of crisis response and more.

This course have a ‘first responder’ focus but is suitable for any individual who wants to understand mental health challenges and learn how to offer support. What does it mean to be a first responder?… in reality, every individual has the potential to be a first responder. Most often this description is associated with professional individuals who have received specialised training in dealing with emergencies. The reality is that the first responder is often a bystander (someone like you and me), on an emergency scene, providing the very first few minutes of support for someone in need, whether that be physical or mental first aid.

Not only is this course nationally recognised, but it is also a concise and efficient course that offers a practical solution for individuals seeking to understand the basics of or enhance their mental health support skills. Its streamlined format saves valuable time, allowing you to gain essential knowledge and skills without a significant time commitment. 

You will learn to recognise signs and symptoms of mental health concerns and respond effectively, providing crucial support until professional help is available.

Mental Health First Aid duration is approximately 2-3 hours online study with 2 hours practical in class.
