Summary Early intervention is usually discussed among formal health providers. Many people with mental disorders delay seeking help, but they are more likely to receive professional help when this is suggested by family, friends and other members in their social network. The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training Program is a method of achieving this by providing members of the public skills to give the first early intervention. This paper gives a brief description of the MHFA program, its development in Australia, its roll-out in other countries, especially in Hong Kong, and evaluation studies which have been carried out. The future directions for MHFA are also discussed.
