Become a Licensed Mental Health First Aid Provider
Mental Health First Aid International is proactively seeking to work with values-aligned not-for-profit organisations to increase the reach and impact of the Mental Health First Aid program globally. As a guide, organisations have to demonstrate the following for further consideration as a prospective Mental Health First Aid Licensed Provider:
Prospective licensed providers must have a business and funding model that provides necessary start-up funding to cover up to 12 months of operating costs. This will cover the time needed to tailor, translate and develop teaching materials from our core curriculum in addition to the piloting of MHFA courses that are suitable for the local context.
Prospective licensed providers need to have sufficient capacity and a distribution model or network to be able to deliver the MHFA program nationally over time, rather than in just one city or region.
Research & Evaluation
Prospective licensed providers need to demonstrate a commitment to research and evaluation. Preferably this will include an existing relationship with a University or relevant Government agency that will support the evaluation of MHFA training in country.
