Much like physical First Aid, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help given to someone until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. For MHFA this could be responding to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
MHFA strategies are expert-consensus based and have been developed by Mental Health First Aid Australia, the body responsible for accrediting MHFA instructors across the country.
