Mental Health Training Australia

Mental Health Training Australia (MHTA) is a training organisation striving to help create a community where people feel safe to talk about, and then get help for, any mental health issues they may be experiencing.  We are passionate about creating workplaces where everyone can feel safe to talk about any mental health concerns they might have, provide information for all staff about what help is available and empower everyone to seek that help and encourage others to do the same.   Begin creating a workplace where your staff feel safe and empowered today by educating all staff and tailoring your procedures in ways that promote a safe work environment.   Talk to us about how we can work with you to make this happen by calling us on 1800 50 40 20.

We specialise in providing Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid training in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane but we are able to deliver Mental Health First Aid training anywhere in Australia.  Our trainers are some of the most experienced Mental Health First Aid trainers in Australia!

Our training can be provided in your office, meeting room or community centre and a e-Learning capability is also available!  This means that you can complete training at your desk in the office, at home, in a coffee shop or at the beach.   Completing training through our e-learning capability is a perfect option for meeting your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) needs or for getting your staff up to speed about mental health at work very quickly.
