Accredited MHFA instructor

Working as an accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructor Matt has trained over 400 MHFAiders over the past three years, including members of the community, healthcare clinicians, teachers and elite sports professionals. Matt specialises in working with large corporations to deliver MHFA across whole teams, tailoring programs to fit the idiosyncratic challenges they face.

WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (MHFA)?

1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That means that every person is likely to know someone who is experiencing a mental health problem, whether that is a family member, a friend or colleague. In fact, mental illness is now said to affect every Australian either directly or indirectly.


We need more mental health literacy and support skills in the community to help catch more Australians experiencing mental health problems and troubled times.


This is where Mental Health First Aid training can help.


Mental Health First Aid skills based, early-intervention training programs mobilise and empower communities by equipping people with the knowledge and confidence to recognise, connect and respond to someone experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis.


Anyone can have a conversation that may save a life, everyone should know how.
