Refresher courses are 4-hour courses that allow people who have previously completed a 12 or 14 hour Mental Health First Aid course to refresh their knowledge and skills. Accredited MHFAiders can renew their accreditation for a further three years.

This course gives participants an opportunity to refresh the knowledge and skills learnt during the 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid Course. You will:

Gain an understanding of the latest research in the mental health field

Learn the 3 key actions for helping someone feeling suicidal

Work through complex mental health first aid interactions

Practice mental health first aid skills.

This is a 4 hour course, based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.

 

Participants have from 6 months before their accreditation expiry to 3 months after to complete a Refresher Course and complete the online assessment. Their renewed accreditation will be valid for 3 years from the date they passed their refresher online assessment.

The aim of the Refresher Courses is to update and build upon skills learned in the initial 12 or 14-hour mental health first aid course. The courses contain new films and additional materials. The courses are delivered in a 4-hour face-to-face session and participants will receive a manual to take home.

If you have completed more than one MHFA course and proceeded to complete accreditation for each of these (e.g., Standard MHFA and Youth MHFA), you will have a separate accreditation for each course. Therefore, you will need to complete a Refresher Course for each of these. Each accreditation will have a separate expiry date, which will correspond to when you need to complete the Refresher Course.

Empowered Lives can also provide this course as In-house training.

Contact training@empoweredlives.net.au  or Kirsten on 0402 329 363 to discuss. 

This course has been developed by Mental Health First Aid Australia, and is delivered by Instructors who are accredited by MHFA Australia to run this course.
