2-day Mental Health First Aid Workshop - January 2020

About this Event

A two-day workshop held every month in Waterloo, Ontario. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.

Do you feel that your colleague or Loved One is not behaving in their usual way, and SOMETHING IS JUST OFF

You COULD be Seeing Signs of Mental Illness.

This could look like:

Your loved one’s lives unravelling before your eyes and going on a downward spiral

Your relationship with your colleague or loved one being affected in a negative way

You’re seeing some underlying suffering going on, but they’re are not telling you what it is

You want to be able to help but you don’t know how and you’re afraid of making the situation worse, so you don’t do anything and hope it will go away on its own…

But it doesn’t:(

You CAN be the bridge to helping your family, friends or colleagues through mental illness and we can show you how

Join us, for a 2 day workshop at Faithlife Financial in Waterloo, Ontario where you will come away with:

-The ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental illness

-Tried and tested tools that you can use with your own colleagues or loved ones to help reduce their suffering

-An evidence based Mental Health First Aid Kit to take away to SUPPORT YOU in your role as a Mental Health First Aider

-A Certificate in Mental Health First Aid that can be used in your workplace or community

As an added bonus, attendees of our Mental Health First Aid Workshop will each receive a free PASS kit. The PASS (Panic, Anxiety, & Stress Support) kit from http://mypasskit.com/ includes evidence-based items that have been carefully researched and selected to manage daily stressors and stimulate the mental health discussion. The kit includes 2 pairs of earplugs to block out noise, a sleeping mask to shield light, chewing gum for both focus and refreshment, a squeezable stress star, and flashcards with concise and curated psychological advice in times of need.
