International MHFA Programs

You are here

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) has spread rapidly within Australia and and has also grown into a universal mental health program, having been adapted for use in a number of other countries. The creators of MHFA, Betty Kitchener OAM and Professor Tony Jorm, have been generous in sharing the program overseas. Rigorous evaluation of the MHFA Program has also contributed to its international uptake.
