Mental Health First Aid for Medical Students


Mental Health First Aid for Medical Students

The tailored Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course for Medical Students teaches students how to assist a peer who may be developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.

Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, how to give initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

The MHFA for Medical Student courses provided by MIFNQ are sponsored by the Australian Government.
