Mental Health First Aid refresher training

The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) refresher is a five hour face-to-face course for people who have previously completed Mental Health First Aid, to refresh their knowledge and skills. It also provides an opportunity for accredited MHFAiders to extend their accreditation for a further three years.

You will:

  • gain an understanding of the latest research in the mental health field
  • learn the three key actions for helping someone feeling suicidal
  • work through complex mental health first aid interactions
  • practice mental health first aid skills.

Participants need to be aware that this course is not a therapy or support group - rather it is focused on education and skill development. Due to the nature of the content that is covered, it is important that people undertaking the course are feeling relatively robust when they undertake it.
