This Award Winning MHFA Course trains participants to give early help to developing mental health problems and assistance in crisis situations.


What is Mental First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis (e.g., the person is suicidal or has had a traumatic experience). Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.  

Mental Health First Aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training courses authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and delivered by accredited MHFA Instructors across the country. 

The Instructor, Jackie Hibble is accredited by MHFA Australia and offers MHFA Courses as authored by MHFA Australia, delivered by Instructors who are currenly accredited b MHFA Australia.
