The Blended Online MHFA Tertiary Course is adapted from the Standard Mental Health First Aid Course for adults which teaches students in tertiary settings how to assist a fellow student developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The course teaches tertiary students how to assist a peer 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.

Developed in response to COVID-19, the new Blended Online Tertiary Mental Health First Aid in the course includes two course components.

Course component 1 – Self-paced interactive eLearning

Developing mental health problems covered:

Course component 2 - Instructor-led video conferencing (2 x 2.5 hour sessions)

This course component allows participants the opportunity to revise and consolidate practical skills in a group environment. The video conferencing component is designed to be delivered after participants have completed the eLearning component of the Blended Online MHFA Tertiary Course.

In this training, delivered over video conference from wherever you are, the focus is on the revision and application of knowledge and skills learnt in the eLearning component. The video conferencing includes large and small group activities, providing participants with the opportunity to:
