About this Event

***THIS SESSION HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. IF YOU ARE REGISTERED TO ATTEND THIS SESSION, YOU'VE BEEN SENT AN EMAIL WITH FURTHER DETAILS. THANK YOU.***

Mental Health First Aid Basic Training is an evidence-based program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada, and was developed to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. This course aims to improve mental health literacy and teaches participants how to recognize early warning signs that a friend, family member or colleague may be struggling with a mental health issue, as well as intervention strategies for mental health crisis situations. This interactive course is provided in a supportive group learning environment. Practical skills are taught using a model that is easy to remember and apply in real-life settings. Topics include the four most common mental illnesses: substance-related, mood, anxiety and trauma-related and psychotic disorders. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with their family, friends, communities and workplaces. This training meets best practice guidelines set forth in the CSA National Standard of Canada on Psychological Health & Safety in the Workplace, teaching participants invaluable skills to address mental health confidently, sensitively and effectively in their workplaces and beyond.

Arpeggio Health Services has many mental health training opportunities available the coming months throughout Atlantic Canada. For a complete list and detailed course descriptions, please visit arpeggiohealthservices.com.
