Description

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.

Topics covered

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bi polar disorder
  • Substance use disorders

The crisis situations include;

  • Suicidal thoughts & behaviours
  • Non-suicidal self injury
  • Acute stress reaction from a traumatic event
  • Panic attacks

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.
