In order to improve the quality of the mental health first aid techniques being taught to the public in MHFA courses, MHFA Australia and researchers at the Population Mental Health Group at the University of Melbourne have developed guidelines on what constitutes best practice first aid, as informed by expert consensus (i.e., consensus-based guidelines). MHFA Course curriculum in face to face and eLearning is based on these guidelines. View all published research on MHFA Course development (i.e., MHFA Guidelines development). Download Here.
