A Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider) is a person who has completed a MHFA Course delivered by an Accredited MHFA Instructor. As an MHFAider you have the opportunity to complete an online Accreditation Assessment in order to become an Accredited MHFAider for 3 years.*
If you pass the assessment, you will be issued a digital PDF Certificate of Accreditation by MHFA Australia. If you do not pass the assessment, you will receive a digital PDF Certificate of Completion. If the latter happens, we then recommend you complete the full MHFA course again in the future and re-attempt the Accreditation Assessment. In this way, we can ensure all MHFAiders have demonstrated their competency before going on to do a shorter Refresher Accreditation Course in 3 years time.
