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.
For more information about MHFA, please visit www.mhfa.ca.
You will learn how to:
Recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health problems.
Talk compassionately about mental issues and provide initial help.
Guide a person towards appropriate professional help.
