The Blended Online AMHFA Community course is a 2-component course that has been adapted from the Standard MHFA (SMHFA) course for people 18 years and over. This course has been developed to support information about providing mental health first aid, and undertaking self-care being provided into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
.
Blended AMHFA teaches participants how to assist an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
.
Please note it is an educational setting, not therapy. That being said it is quite normal for people to become distressed during some content and your highly skilled Lifeline facilitator will be there to guide and support you through the process.
.
Blended Online MHFA Community workshop includes two course components:
• Course component 1 is a self-paced interactive eLearning (7 hours via the MHFA Australia website)
• Course component 2 covers a 5-hour Instructor-led video conferencing session via Zoom
.
For the virtual sessions you will need access to a computer or tablet with an internet connection, a camera, microphone and speakers. A Zoom account is not needed – we will send a link to you once you are registered with MHFA.
.
Participants need to complete their course component 1 prior to attending the course component 2. Both course components of the course are to be completed within a 3-month period.
