Event: Mental Health First Aid Canada Basic

Mental health problems will affect one in three Canadians at some point in their life. This is a 12 hour interactive certificate course that teaches first aid skills to help someone who is developing mental health problems or is experiencing a mental health crisis. Anyone can benefit from learning MHFA, general public, teachers, employers, volunteers, emergency workers, community groups. MHDA is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis is resolved. The concept is based on the model of medical first aid. Some mental health problems are more common than many physical health problems. Most people have little knowledge about mental illness. This lack of understanding promotes fear and stigma. It prevents people from seeking help early and seeking the best kind of help. It also keeps people from providing support simply because they do not know how. Participants are required to attend the full 12 hours in order to receive a certificate.
