Mental Health First Aid Training. A 2 day course. "COURSE IS FULL"

*please contact the organizer, Susan Kagan, for the dates in the fall that this course will run, or to request a special presentation to a specific organization.

One in three people will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime. As a result, this course was developed to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis. This 12 hour course teaches mental health first aid skills.

The philosophy behind MHFA Canada is that a mental health crisis may be avoided through early intervention. If a crisis does arise, then members of the public can take action to reduce harm and provide support.

MHFA training will teach the participants to:
• Recognize the symptoms of mental health problems
• Provide initial help
• Guide a person toward appropriate professional help
• Provide help to prevent the mental health problem from becoming more serious
• Reduce stigma towards those experiencing mental health problems

Who should attend?
Everyone can benefit from MHFA Canada training – members of the general public, teachers, health services providers, university students, emergency workers, frontline workers who deal with the public, volunteers, human resource professionals, employers, community groups.
