Mental Health First Aid Courses

We've partnered with The Wish Group and Mental Health First Aid Australia to give Federation University higher education and TAFE students access to free, accredited Mental Health First Aid training. On completion of the program you'll have the opportunity to complete a free online Accreditation Assessment in order to become an employer recognised, accredited, MHFAider for 3 years.

The Blended Online Mental Health First Aid Tertiary Course will teach you how to provide initial support to fellow students 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.

These courses are delivered 100% online in a blended format.
