‘Mental Health First Aid’ is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

Mental Health First Aid Australia is a not-for-profit organisation focused on mental health training and research, and providing courses both for the public, and also tailored specifically to medical students.

The courses teach medical students how to assist a peer who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to give initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

These courses can be completed either as a face-to-face training package, or as a self-paced eLearning module.
