Event description

Description

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing 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.

Mental Health First Aid:

  • Engages confidently where a person may be a danger to themselves or others.
  • Provides help to prevent the mental health problem from developing into a more serious state.
  • Promotes the recovery of good mental health.
  • Provides comfort to a person experiencing a mental health problem.


MHFA Adults who Interact with Youth is intended for an adult audience whose primary focus is youth (aged 14-25). This courses focuses on the four most common mental health disorders including substance related, mood related, anxiety and trauma related, and psychotic disorders. In addition, this course includes instruction about eating disorders and deliberate self-injury. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with the young people in their lives, including at schools, extra-curricular activities, social services, family, friends, and communities.

The course is 14 hours in length and runs over two days: Saturday November 4, 2017 & Sunday November 5, 2017.
