Mental Health First Aid is a nationally recognized training and program of The Mental Health Commission of Canada. This 12-hour course is taught over 2 consecutive days; and this interactive course provides a supportive and safe group learning environment. Practical skills are taught using a model that is easy to remember and apply in real-life settings.
Participants will learn how to help people who are showing signs of mental health problems or who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

- A basic model to provide mental health first aid
- Information about effective interventions and treatments
