"I recently completed the Mental Health First Aid course, and it was a truly eye-opening experience. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and created a supportive learning environment. The course content was comprehensive, covering various mental health topics and practical strategies for assistance. What stood out was the course's focus on destigmatising mental health issues, promoting open dialogue, and emphasising empathy. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to make a positive impact on the mental well-being of others. It's a valuable resource that equips you with the skills and knowledge to offer meaningful support." — Kimberley

Support Your Team with a Mental Health First Aid Course

A 2022 report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare found that about 1 in 5 Australians had experienced a mental health issue in the previous 12 months. That means mental illness is a growing problem, and it’s something that effective managers need to be on the lookout for. To ensure you’re equipped to deal with the mental wellbeing of your employees, MiTraining offers mental health first aid training courses both online and in-person.

MiTraining delivers courses designed by Mental Health First Aid Australia. MHFA is on a mission to provide high quality mental health education to everybody, and MiTraining is here to support that goal. During the Mental Health First Aid Course, you will learn to understand mental health needs and support your team like never before and on successful completion, receive your Mental Health First Aid Certification.

The 2-day MHFA course discusses some of the most common mental illnesses, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use

Face to Face Mental Health First Aid Courses

Our standard two-day mental health first aid course is designed for adults (18 years and over) from every level of your business. During the course you will learn how to provide initial support to other adults that are experiencing or developing a mental health problem. The initial aid you provide can make all the difference, which is why our courses are structured to cover major mental health events like:

  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • Panic attacks
  • Traumatic events
  • Severe psychotic states
  • Severe effects from alcohol or drug use
  • Aggressive behaviours

The focus of our Mental Health First Aid Course is to prepare you with the skills and confidence to approach these issues. Our courses offer training on the signs and symptoms of mental health issues, improving your literacy and allow you to provide effective support. By building your confidence in handling mental health issues, you’ll be able to help your team, build stronger workplaces and improve the wellbeing of the people around you.
