Mental Health First Aid

All events Wellness

If you've taken a physical first aid course; you've learned the skills needed to help someone experiencing a sudden illness or injury. People can also have a mental health crisis, and it is important that more Canadians know how to provide help in these situations too.

Mental Health First Aid, an evidence-based program designed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, is the help provided a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing the worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Just like physical first aid is provided until medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate support is found or until the crisis is resolved. You will learn to recognize a change in behaviour, respond with a confident conversation, and guide to appropriate resources and support.

9:00am to 4:00pm (each day)
