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
