Brain Medic - MHFA


A Mental Health First Aid program for organisational leaders, staff, and volunteers.

Mental Health First Aid is the help offered to a person developing a mental problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or until the crisis resolves. The aim of Mental Health First Aid is to: preserve life where a person may be at risk of harm: provide help to prevent the mental health problem from becoming more serious: promote recovery of good mental health and provide comfort to a person with a mental health problem. Brain Medic™ is an essential program for schools, churches, and organisations, as it teaches how to recognise the cluster of symptoms of different illnesses and mental health crises, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate treatment or other supports.
