Mental Health First Aid - SYNCHRONOUS

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.
