Mental Health First Aid Training - CANCELLED

Event Date: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019 - 9:00am to 4:30pm

According to Public Health Canada, “Mental illness is experienced by 1 in 3 Canadians during their lifetime. Many of us are affected by it either directly or indirectly through family, friends or colleagues.” A person skilled in Mental Health First Aid can make an immediate difference, by providing initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

This 12-hour course (Saturday, Nov. 30th and Saturday, Dec. 7th, 9am to 430 pm) leads to a certificate from the Mental Health Commission of Canada and teaches participants practical and evidence-based skills in order to provide mental health first aid.

MHFA training will teach the participants to:

  • Reduce stigma towards those experiencing mental health problems
  • Recognize the symptoms, signs and risks associated with common mental health problems
  • Engage confidently if a person may be in crisis or at risk of harm
  • Guide a person toward appropriate professional help
  • Provide immediate assistance to prevent the mental health problem from becoming more serious

Who should attend?

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

COST:    $195.00 per person, including the MHFA Manual
