About the course:
Refresher courses are available for individuals that have completed a full 2-day Mental Health First Aid® course, followed by the completion of an accreditation assessment within the last 3 years.

These courses enable accredited Mental Health First Aiders™ to revise their knowledge and skills, and to extend their accreditation for a further 3 years.

The Standard Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course gives participants an opportunity to refresh the knowledge and skills learnt during the 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid Course. You will:

  • Gain an understanding of the latest research in the mental health field
  • Learn the 3 key actions for helping someone feeling suicidal
  • Work through complex mental health first aid interactions
  • Practice mental health first aid skills.

Online Delivery:

One 5-hr session to be delivered online via Zoom by a Licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor. Upon completion of your Refresher Course, you can attempt another accreditation assessment to extend your accreditation by a further 3 years (one time only).

Please note: If it's been over 3 years since you obtained accreditation, or 3 years after completing a Refresher Course, MHFAiders will need to attend a full 12 or 14-hour MHFA course in order to maintain their accreditation.
