mental health first aid

Each year 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness. Many people are not knowledgeable or confident to offer assistance. Physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community, however most do not cover mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they’re concerned about.

Learn skills and gain confidence to assist friends, family and co-workers experiencing mental health problems.

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.


It is estimated that between 20 and 30 per cent of the workforce will suffer from a serious mental health problem at some point in their working life, such as anxiety, depression or obsessive compulsive disorder.

Mental health has been found to affect job involvement, job satisfaction, loyalty, performance, absence, turnover and physical health.

Mental health is estimated to cost the Australian economy $12 Billion per annum.

Implementing mental health training and support in your business can see returns of $15 per every $1 invested.
