Description

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

MHFA courses teach mental health first aid strategies to members of the public. 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.

Course content is derived from a number of consensus studies incorporating the expertise of hundreds of researchers, clinicians, mental health consumer advocates and carer advocates across the English speaking western world.

MHFA courses can provide members of the community with

•Skills in how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems

•Knowledge of the possible risk factors for these mental health problems

•Awareness of the evidenced based medical, psychological and alternative treatments available

•Skills in how to give appropriate initial help and support someone experiencing a mental health problem

•Skills in how to take appropriate action if a crisis situation arises involving suicidal behaviour, panic attack, stress reaction to trauma, overdose or threatening psychotic behaviour

Older Person Mental Health First Aid is for any interested adult, particularly those who work with, live with or care for older people, including families and carers.

You will learn how to assist a person aged 65+ who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical evidence based action plan.
