Tips For Selecting The Best MHFA Courses Near Me

There are a diverse range of MHFA training options and modalities - it is good to consider what is the best course for your needs. 


Safer Communities offers MHFA programs to suit adults working with other adults, young people or older Australians. There is a MHFA program for Indigenous communities and a very exciting teen MHFA program for adolescents to learn the skills to help a peer. There are a range of speciality MHFA courses that focus on particular issues such as Suicide Discussions, Self-Injury or Gambling. Each different course is described in more details at the MHFA Training Tab


If a MHFA Course does not fit your organisation's specific needs, then you might be interested in Bespoke Mental Health Education with us. We can design programs that meet the needs of any workplace or community.
