Mental Health First Aid Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation focused on mental health training and research. Our core work is to develop MHFA courses, and train Instructors to deliver these courses to their communities or workplaces. MHFA courses are delivered across Australia and internationally. MHFA courses teach members of the public how to provide initial help 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. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
Who can attend? Any employee or business owner in the commercial seafood sector (including aquaculture), their family or friends over 18 years.
What’s the cost? There is no cost for our industry. The course is funded by the Federal Government Department of Health, Mental Health program through a grant provided to Seafood Industry Australia and Women in Seafood Australasia.
