UNSW Health are pleased to offer subsidised Blended Online Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training to UNSW Staff & Students.

UNSW Sydney is proud to be recognised as a Gold Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Skilled Workplace, showing our commitment to building a mentally healthy workplace. Students and staff at UNSW are encouraged to get involved by undergoing training to become a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider) and build local MHFA networks in their Faculties and Schools.

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Just like physical first aid courses train members of the public to provide basic first aid to someone with a physical health condition, MHFA teaches skills to help someone experiencing a mental health problem.

Once the training is complete you can complete an online assessment to become an accredited MHFAider.
