This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

UNSW Health and UNSW Wellbeing are pleased to offer subsidised Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training to UNSW Students.

UNSW Sydney is proud to be recognised as a Gold Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Skilled Workplace, showing our commitment to building a mentally healthy workplace. Students and staff at UNSW are encouraged to get involved by undergoing training to become a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider) and build local MHFA networks in their Faculties and Schools.

What is Mental Health First Aid? 

Just like physical First Aid courses that train members of the public to provide basic first aid to someone with a physical health condition, MHFA teaches skills to help someone who is experiencing a mental health problem.

Training Format

The Standard MHFA Course will be delivered on campus by a Master MHFA facilitator on campus over two days. You need to be present for the full two days to become accredited in MHFA, so please only register if you can commit to this. (Note: online alternative options are available if you prefer not to come on to campus. Please click HERE for details).

You will be provided with a MHFA manual to keep. Please bring a pen and notebook. It's also a good idea to bring a jacket as it can be hard to set the AC temp to suit everyone! 

Once the training is complete you are able to complete an online assessment to become an accredited MHFAider.
