MHW - My Healthy Workplace

My Healthy Workplace: Mental Health First Aid

Duration: 2 days
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
Mental health issues will affect one in three Canadians at some point in their life; chances are there are people around you who need help. This two day Mental Health “First Aid” course teaches participants skills needed to help someone who may be developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis. This course does not train you to be a therapist, counsellor or mental health professional, but instead teaches you how to apply the needed “first aid” until professional help is received or until the crises is resolved. The course covers the following topics:

 What is meant by mental health and mental illness problems
 Signs and symptoms of common mental health problems and crisis situations
 A basic model to provide mental health aid
 Information about effective interventions and treatments
 How to access professional help

Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a Mental Health First Aid Canada Certificate, for this reason attendance is mandatory for the full two days.
