i have been delivering this course since 2010. MHFA is for everyone. This month I am highlighting the STANDARD course. To find out more - email me on giirawayganyi@gmail.com

The 12-hour STANDARD Mental Health First Aid course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. The course curriculum is based on the MHFA Guidelines.

Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
