Event Details

Mental health first aid is the help provided to someone who is developing a mental health problem, has a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training programs authorised by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and conducted by MHFA instructors across Australia.

The Accredited Youth Mental Health First Aid Course is for adults working with adolescents (up to 18 years of age), however the course is relevant for those helping people who are a little older.


  • Course Component 1 – Self-paced interactive eLearning (7 hours) to be completed before 6 October.
  • Course Component 2 – Virtual workshop: 2 x 3.5-hour sessions on 6 & 7 October, 9.30am – 1.00pm both days.

Course content: For further information, please visit Accredited Youth MHFA course (ignore ‘What is the format’ and ‘How do I sign up’).

The blended Youth MHFA course includes a combination of self-paced eLearning, and an instructor-led component delivered via a virtual workshop over 2 days.

  • Course Component 1 – Course participants must first complete the interactive self-paced eLearning component prior to joining the virtual workshop in October. They will learn about mental health problems, mental health crises, and skills to offer initial help to a young person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
  • Course Component 2 – The instructor-led virtual workshop allows participants the opportunity to revise and  consolidate knowledge and skills in a group environment, and to apply their skills to specific scenarios.

Accreditation: After completing both components, participants can complete an online Accreditation Assessment to become an Accredited Mental Health First Aider (valid for 3 years).
