Mental Health First Aid Brisbane Courses

We are accredited to deliver Mental Health First Aid Brisbane programs developed by Mental Health First Aid Australia, a national, not-for-profit organisation focussed on mental health training and research. Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
We consistently receive very positive feedback about our MHFA courses – check out some of the testimonials from previous participants below or on our Testimonials page.
