Mental Health First Aid

Take a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Standard (Virtual) 8 hour or Basic 12 hour certificate course with certified facilitator Alison Butler.

What is Mental Health First Aid?

"Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis.

Course participants will learn how to recognize signs that a person may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis and encourage that person to:

  • Talk about declines in their mental well-being

  • Discuss professional and other supports that could help with recovery to improved mental well-being

  • Reach out to these support

  • Assist in a mental health or substance use crisis

  • Use MHFA actions to maintain one’s own mental well-being".


Who Takes MHFA?

"Everyone. Anyone can benefit from MHFA, and more than 300,000 Canadians have been trained already. From psychological health and safety in the workplace to schools and community groups to people in Northern Canada, MHFA has had a positive and long lasting impact on Canadians from coast to coast to coast. 

MHFA is well suited to all workplaces seeking to reduce incidences of mental health problems and issues".
