Event description

Description

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 a person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.


The philosophy behind MHFA Canada is that mental health crises, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention. If crises do arise, then members of the public can take action that may reduce the harm that could result.

It is meant to assist educational professionals, health providers, parents and other adults in the identification of mental health problems and appropriate first aid intervention strategies. Early identification can help improve the lives of people across Canada.
