What is MHFA?
MFHA is the German version of the Australian Mental Health First Aid Programm which is spread over 26 countries. The German network is operated by the “Zentralinstitut für Seelische Gesundheit“ with support of the “Dietmar Hopp Foundation“ and in partnership with the “Beisheim Foundation”.
Almost everyone knows someone around them who suffers or suffered from psychological problems. The CGA actively promotes trained MHFA as contact persons for doctoral candidates who are also able to actively approach people and offer support.
The earlier affected people receive support, the higher are their chances for recovery.
What to expect?
The CGA MFHA counsel on the basis of first aid measures during arising psychological health issues as well as acute psychological crises. Every CGA member can make use of this support free of charge.
