Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Canada is a training program designed to enable people to recognize symptoms and provide support in mental health emergencies until professional help can step-in. No mental health experience is necessary.

Full attendance is required to receive certification.

The goals of the course include:

  • educating participants and helping them identify signs of mental health problems in co-workers, friends, family, strangers, and even themselves
  • teaching participants how to support the individual and to help seek appropriate treatment for them
  • reducing the stigma of mental illness

Group sessions can also be booked for a workplace.

Program is funded by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
