Blended MHFA courses are comprised of two components:
- A self-paced eLearning component (takes 6-8 hours to complete). See information below regarding prices.
- A half day face-to-face session of 4-hours (Blended Face-to-Face Courses). Course fee is set by Instructors who work independently.
Course component 1 - eLearning Voucher Pricing
MHFA Australia is currently offering subsidised eLearning voucher pricing for all Blended Face-to-Face and Blended Online courses to ensure our courses remained accessible and affordable as the community continues to recover from the impact of COVID19. Subsidised pricing will remain in place until 31 December 2021.
The pricing subsidies provide the greatest level of subsidy for at risk and disadvantaged population groups including young people and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Vouchers for all Blended Youth, Tertiary and Blended AMHFA Community courses are $55 GST inclusive except Blended MHFA Yarns which is $44 GST inclusive.
The eLearning vouchers for all other Blended Face-to-Face courses (Tertiary, Workplace, Pharmacy, Legal and Financial Services Professionals) and Blended Online Courses (Workplace, Community, Tertiary, Financial Services Professionals, Pharmacy, and Legal) are $88 GST inclusive). This price covers the provision of a hard copy Standard MHFA Manual for all participants. Please note that postage costs are additional to this price.
Whilst our eLearning courses remain subsidised, no further bulk purchase discounts are available.
Course Fees & Accredited Instructors
Mental Health First Aid Australia does not employ Instructors that it trains and accredits. Therefore, each accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructor has the autonomy and flexibility to set their own course fees. Course fees do vary for many reasons which can include: course type, individual Instructor qualifications and credentials, course venue, course location (metropolitan vs regional locations), course catering and course participant subsidies that may be available as a result of a community grant.
We recommend that all of our accredited Instructors charge modest fees for course participants on a sliding scale, however, independent Instructors must be able to able to cover their own costs whilst ensuring they deliver accredited Mental Health First Aid courses in accordance with the course curriculum provided, and the quality standards specified by Mental Health First Aid Australia.
