The eLearning MHFA Course for Tertiary Students is designed to provide students with the skills 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.
This eLearning course will be available for free to first year health and allied health students from August 2017 to June 2019 thanks to funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. The usual cost for this course is $50 per person and the funding allows students to access it at no cost. Students can enrol directly via our website, students will need to enrol with a personal rather than university email address. Students will be posted a course manual to their nominated postal address.
Students can also choose to complete a follow-on half-day face-to-face component if they wish to become an Accredited MHFAider. The university may be able to arrange this through internal instructors, however the costs would be the responsibility of the university or the students.
