Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) was pioneered by Betty Kitchener and Anthony Jorm in 2000, with the aim of increasing mental health literacy among the Australian community. The idea of MHFA is that people should be taught how to perform basic ‘first aid’ for those exhibiting signs of mental health distress, just as they are commonly taught first aid for physical problems. Betty Kitchener and Anthony Jorm assert that MHFA is available to increase knowledge, reduce stigma and increase supportive reactions in terms of mental health.
