MHFA Australia does not employ the MHFA Instructors that it trains and accredits and therefore each MHFA Instructor has autonomy & flexibility to set their fees. We recommend modest fees, on a sliding scale. However, Instructors need to be able to cover their costs. Some Instructors teach the MHFA course as part of their paid employment, and thus have a salary whilst teaching. Others conduct the MHFA course as a private business.
Fees can be reduced, if any of the following items are provided by your office :
- the venue
- tea and coffee
- equipment (VCR & TV, whiteboard, overhead projector (or data projector and laptop)
A fee of $100 - $300 per person could be expected.
