Mental Health First Aid Training
(12-hour course delivered over 2 days)
What is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a comprehensive program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada that gives people the skills to provide early intervention to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.
During this 12-hour course, attendees will learn
- the most common mental health illnesses and crises, including identifying signs and symptoms of these illnesses;
- the steps to support an individual having a mental health crisis;
- effective interventions and treatments for mental illness; and
- how to help a person experiencing a mental health crisis to get the professional help they need.
All attendees who complete the course receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate issued by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
