Mental Health First Aid Course Online

The Benefits of Taking Mental Health First Aid Courses Online

Mental Health First Aid Courses are internationally recognised as highly effective to teach people how to spot different signs and symptoms of mental illness in schools, workplaces and the broader community. In addition to spotting the signs and symptoms of different mental illnesses, Mental Health First Aid Courses help people learn how to offer first aid to people who have been affected by mental health problems.

People with mental health problems can feel isolated and alone. With Mental Health First Aid courses from Safer Communities, people learn how to support and how to create a welcoming and safe school, workplace or community for everyone.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mental Health First Aid Australia and Safer Communities have been busy developing courses that are accessible online. This allows your organisation to access quality training at a time and location that suits your needs. We use Zoom to deliver live instructor webinars, as well as self-paced learning modules developed by MHFA Australia. The online versions of MHFA programs are engaging, evidence-based and highly accessible. 

Participants can join training from any location, giving flexibility to workplaces with team members in different locations to learn together without needing expensive travel and accommodation costs. Online learning is time efficient. The same evidence-based high-quality program design has been used to develop online learning. Participants undertaking online MHFA courses receive full accreditation as a MHFAider.

Safer Communities believes in supporting the vast community of Australians with underserved mental health needs. By taking our Mental Health First Aid Course online, you can be part of the movement to create a higher degree of support.


Safer Communities offers Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training and consultancy to schools and workplaces. We are based in the Byron Bay Hinterland but travel throughout Australia.
