Event description
Mental Health First Aid is a two day workshop to learn skills to help someone who may be developing a mental health problem or in a crisis.

About this Event

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing the worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Just like physical first aid is provided until medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate support is found or until the crisis is resolved. These two day courses trains you to be a Mental Health First Aider.

Mental Health First Aid Canada: For Adults Who Interact With Youth is designed to be sensitive to the unique needs of young people. It is meant to assist education professionals, health providers, parents and other adults in the identification of mental health problems and appropriate first aid intervention strategies.

The MHFA Canada: For Adults who Interact with Youth is a 14 hour course typically covered over two days. The material covered is specific to youth, aged 12 to 24 years.

The course has seven modules, with the following topics covered:

 Mental Health and Mental Illness

 Substance Related Disorders

 Mood Disorders

 Deliberate Self – Injury

 Anxiety and Trauma Related Disorders

 Eating Disorders

 Psychotic Disorders

The following mental health crisis situations are covered:

 Overdoses

 Suicidal Behaviour

 Panic Attacks

 Reactions to traumatic events

 Violence associated with psychosis

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.

Participants receive a copy of the Youth MHFA manual to keep.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the workshop will be set up to allow for physical distancing. We will ensure the following provisions will be available for our workshop;

hand sanitizer available for use.

additional cleaning of room and tables prior to each day of training

All participants will continue to follow the normal precautions to minimize the spread of infectious disease, including washing your hands thoroughly and regularly, sneezing or coughing into your elbow rather than your hand, and disinfecting surfaces that are frequently touched. Participants who do not will be asked to leave. We encourage anyone that is feeling ill to not attend the workshop. The facilitator will have the right to refuse entry to the workshop if a person is displaying any cold/flu symptoms. Masks are required as per the provinical health orders.
