Der MHFA Ersthelfer-Kurs für psychische
Gesundheit wurde nach dem erfolgreichen Leitbild für Erste Hilfe bei körperlichen
Erkrankungen entwickelt und bildet Laien in 12 Stunden zu Ersthelfenden für psychische
Gesundheit aus.
Neben theoretischer Wissensvermittlung werden auch konkrete Erste-Hilfe-Maßnahmen
bei sich entwickelnden psychischen Gesundheitsproblemen und bei akuten psychischen
Krisen erlernt und durch praktische Übungen gefestigt.
