The course curriculum is evidence-based, as informed by the MHFA Guidelines.

This course has been widely evaluated in research trials conducted by MHFA Australia and independent organisations.

Some studies have also shown improved mental health in those who attend the training, decreases in stigmatising attitudes and increases in the amount and type of support provided to others.
