About this event
What is MHFA?
MHFA is an internationally recognised and accredited qualification. Just like physical health first aid, mental health first aid teaches practical ways to manage mental health symptoms and crises. Participants will gain a sound knowledge of a wide range of mental health diagnoses, ways to assess and directly help those experiencing a mental health problem, and how to effectively refer them to further support.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) will cover:
- Basic knowledge about common mental health problems and related crisis situations
- What you can provide as a lay person and when to get help
- MHFA Action Plans
- Intervening and managing mental health emergencies as a first responder like Panic attacks, Suicide, Self-harm and Addictions
- Identify the resources available in the local community
Completion of this MHFA training (e-learning & Zoom sessions) will lead to being internationally certified in MHFA. A certificate will be awarded to participants with FULL attendance. All of our trainings are delivered by Mind HK staff or Mental Health Professionals. The minimum age for attendance is 18.
*This is not a course to train someone to become a mental health professional.
