The Animal Referral and Emergency Centre is pleased to provide the Blended Online Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training for veterinary staff. This course will be facilitated by Elizabeth Napier who is an AREC ER Veterinarian, Liz is a qualified Mental Health First Aid Instructor and has an interest in the mental health of staff working in the veterinary profession.

1 in 5 Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training will teach you practical skills to support someone with a mental health problem. Make a real difference at work and in your personal life.

Blended Mental Health First Aid Courses are an alternate online delivery pathway for our 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid Course (for adults assisting other adults)

Blended Online MHFA Courses include two components:

Course Component 1
A self-paced eLearning component
(takes 5-7 hours to complete)

Course Component 2
An Instructor-led component using video-conferencing
(2 sessions of 2.5 hours each including set up time)

Why attend an MHFA course?
Evaluations consistently show that MHFA training is associated with improved knowledge of mental illnesses, their treatments and appropriate first aid strategies, and confidence in providing first aid to individuals with mental illness. It is also associated with decreased stigma and an increase in help provided.
