Description

MHFA for the Suicidal Person logo


Would you know how to help someone who may be having suicidal thoughts? Mental Health First Aid for the Suicidal Person is a course based on expert consensus guidelines developed with both professional and consumer experts from English speaking developed countries. Learning outcomes of the course include:

  • Understanding accurate information about suicide rates and risk factors in the Australian context.
  • Reviewing the first aid guidelines of how to intervene when someone is experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • Practicing these skills in a safe environment.

Please note that the MHFA for the Suicidal Person Course is not a postvention course and is not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide. The MHFA for the Suicidal Person Course is not a therapy or a support group and it is important that people undertaking the course are feeling relatively robust when they undertake it. Specific postvention support services can be found at the beyondblue website.

This course consists of 4-hours of face-to-face training.
Course participants receive a Handbook to keep and receive a digital Certificate of Completion when they submit online feedback.

Who can attend this course?

Any interested adult can attend. Please note this course is not a therapy or support group, rather it is an education course to learn how to give first aid to someone who is feeling suicidal. The course is a stand alone course but also complements the 12-hour Standard MHFA course, Blended MHFA Courses and the 14-hour Youth MHFA course.
