Mental Health First Aid Course Melbourne

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses teach people simple, practical first aid skills for helping a family member, friend, co-worker or other person who is experiencing mental health problems.

COVID-19 UPDATE: EDWAY TRAINING WILL REMAIN OPEN OVER THE 7 DAY LOCKDOWN as we are classed as essential education. Classes will run as normal in line with our COVID-19 Safety Plans and current government restrictions.

PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU ARE FEELING UNWELL TO NOT ATTEND CLASS AND NOTIFY US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, SO WE CAN REBOOK YOUR CLASS.

It is our policy not to allow any student into any training site without a face mask and all students must sign on to the Victorian COVID Tracing QR Code. Refusal to do either of these things will result in the student being asked to leave the premises immediately.

Mental Health First Aid Course Information

  • MHFA course is designed and promoted by MHFA Australia – a national not-for-profit health promotion charity.
  • Mental health problems can affect anyone in the community and inaccurate and stigmatising attitudes towards people with mental illness are common.
  • Many people lack the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support a friend, family member or co-worker experiencing a mental health problem, including how to approach someone and start a safe conversation.
  • With everyday stress situations more and more workplaces require a Mental Health officer – a person who can detect a person’s mental problems at the beginning stage and who can help.
  • Encouraging early help-seeking is one way to promote a mentally healthy workplace.
