Looking back at 21 years of MHFA
This month, we celebrate our 21st anniversary; 21 years since the very first MHFA training course was delivered. This significant milestone provides an opportunity for all of us at MHFA to pause, and reflect on the growth and impact of Mental Health First Aid™ in Australia, and around the world over the last two decades.
We would like to acknowledge the leadership of our founders Betty Kitchener AM, and Professor Tony Jorm, and thank our current and former Board Members and staff, our dedicated Instructors and course participants and our many collaborators and supporters worldwide for being an important part of our journey so far.
21 years on, mental health remains a global priority and our vision for a world where we all have the skills to support people experiencing mental health problems has never been more important.
In celebration of our 21st anniversary, we’d like to share some articles, videos and case studies that look at the impact of Mental Health First Aid training and recognise the people that make this possible. We hope you enjoy!
