I enjoyed the mental health first aid course very much. The instructor Zac was welcoming and very knowledgeable. The group atmosphere was also welcoming and I enjoyed the group tasks. The content was informative and easy to understand and the instructor presented the course in a way, that I felt comfortable to ask questions.

Who should attend a Launceston MHFA Course?

Our Mental Health First Aid Launceston Courses are designed for any adult member of the public to attend, regardless of your background, training or industry. 
Completing a MHFA course doesn’t qualify you to be a Psychologist or therapist, just the same as a regular first aid course doesn’t qualify you to be a nurse or doctor, however you will learn how to help others who are struggling. 

Although anyone can attend, some professionals are required to undertake MHFA Training for their role, or part of their training. Each course will usually have a blend of students attending for job requirements, education requirements, and even personal interest – along with a host of other unique and personal reasons. 

For workplaces wanting to train large numbers of staff, we are also able to offer the training in-house, please contact us for more information.
