Mental Health Awareness

The Mental Health Awareness course is a 6 hour workshop. It is an introductory course with the aim of increasing mental health literacy, decreasing the stigma associated with this topic and building the confidence of participants to help others. This program is specifically designed to help managers and supervisors become more sensitive to employee behavioural changes that may stem from mental health issues so that they can take appropriate, compassionate and caring actions. Participants will learn a framework for approaching employees to offer help before the situation becomes more serious.

Mental Health First Aid

Just like in physical first aid (i.e. CPR), the mental health first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis is resolved. This is a basic introductory course aimed at increasing mental health literacy, decreasing the stigma associated with this topic and building the confidence of participants to be able to support people with mental health problems. The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Basic course is a program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
