Dr Kathy Bond & Ms Fairlie Cottrill (Mental Health First Aid Australia)

Mental health first aid is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia is a NFP organisation that develops and evaluates courses that teach mental health first aid skills to community members. Courses are based on guidelines developed using the Delphi expert consensus research method. Uncontrolled trials are conducted to evaluate new courses.

This presentation will outline some of the current research that is being conducted jointly by MHFA Australia and the University of Melbourne. This includes five Delphi studies (four that are currently being conducted) and five uncontrolled trials (four that are in data collection stage).
