Blended Legal

This is the eLearning component of the Blended MHFA course developed specifically for Australian legal professionals. The course teaches how to assist a co-worker who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs. The mental health first aid skills learnt can be applied to help any adult. PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that you first organise an Instructor to complete the follow-up face-to-face component before you commence the eLearning component, as you will need to complete the face-to-face within 3 months after completing the eLearning.
