Standard MHFA - Refresher Course




Refresher courses allow people who have previously completed a 12 or 14-hour Mental Health First Aid course to refresh their knowledge and skills. For people who are Accredited MHFAiders, refresher courses offer an opportunity to extend their accreditation for a further three years.

The content of each refresher course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.


Refresher courses are available for:

  • Standard MHFA
  • Youth MHFA
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander MHFA

Note: These courses are not therapy or support groups.

What is the format?

Each course is a 4-hour workshop.

Why attend an MHFA course?

Evaluations consistently show that MHFA training is associated with improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in providing first aid to individuals with mental illness. It is also associated with decreased stigma and an increase in the help provided.

What will you learn?

  • Gain an understanding of the latest research in the mental health field
  • Learn the 3 key actions for helping someone feeling suicidal
  • Work through complex mental health first aid interactions
  • Practice mental health first aid skills.

Who can attend this course?
