Description

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID FOR SENIORS is now available in the Maritimes! Learn how to best support Canada's aging population facing challenges such as dementia, anxiety, depression, delirium, psychosis and more. MHFA for Seniors is an evidence-based program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada, intended to increase the capacity of family caregivers as well as staff in care settings and communities to promote mental health in seniors, prevent mental illness and suicide wherever possible and intervene early when problems first emerge. Course content and resource materials are based on best practice guidelines and were developed in consultation with Canadian experts in the field of geriatric psychiatry.

There are several course options scheduled for the coming months throughout the Maritimes. For a complete list, please contact us.
