Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is now available!

Mental Illness is the #1 cause of disability in the Canadian workplace. $51 billion is lost in productivity each year due to mental illness. Although one in four Canadians will experience a mental health problem every year, the stigma associated with mental health can hinder employees from seeking help.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. It is an evidence based program for staff and managers, and a proactive step towards building a psychologically healthy and safe workplace. MHFA trained employees will be equipped to recognize and understand the symptoms of mental health problems, including those related to substance use; increase productivity and reduce absenteeism and the pressure on health benefits costs; reduce the stigma around mental illness and create mental wellness within your workplace and provide preventative help for mental health problems developing into more serious states.

In order to receive certification, the Mental Health Commission of Canada requires the course to be 2 days (12 hours required for certification) and a minimum of 10 participants must be enrolled.

Prerequisite: None

Duration: 2 days

Minimum: Minimum of 10 participants
