    for the Workplace

A tailored mental health course developed for the white collar workplace

This mental health training teaches managers, supervisors and individuals how to assist a person who is developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs. The mental health first aid skills learnt can be applied to help any adult. 

Does your workplace have a mental health first aid officer?

Stress related presenteeism and absenteeism are directly costing Australian employers $10.11 billion a year. 3.2 days per worker are lost each year through workplace stress. Mental Health First Aid can provide knowledge and skills for your colleagues to pick up the early signs and symptoms of mental illness, offer initial help and encourage workers to seek help early. We believe that every workplace should offer Mental Health First Aid training to their workers, and every worksite should appoint at least the same number of Mental Health First Aid Officers as First Aid Officers.

Mental health training is more accessible than ever before

The 12-hour Standard MHFA Course can already be delivered in workplaces with tailored videos and scenarios. Our aim is to make mental health training more widely-accessible, particularly for workplaces who find it difficult to release their staff to attend 12 hours of training, by offering a blended version of this course.

Hear what others think of Mental Health First Aid


Very interactive - no module was the same and the variety of ways to learn (clicking, reading material, answering questions, listening, watching videos) kept me interested throughout.

— Participant


Every Australian has been touched by mental illness, whether it has affected themselves or someone close to them. I now feel much better equipped to recognise and respond appropriately to mental health issues.

— Participant


I'll also add that the workplace course is perfect. My clients have been asking for this for such a long time. It also compliments other workplace training such as risk management and resilience building. My training repertoire is now just how I want it.
