Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence-based program developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC). While we often know a lot about physical illness, there tends to be less knowledge about mental health or substance use problems. This lack of understanding leads to fear and negative attitudes towards individuals living with these problems. This prevents people from seeking help for themselves and from providing appropriate support to people around them.

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.
