Event description

Description

One in three Canadians will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime.

Will YOU know how to help?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) 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.

There are several course options scheduled for the coming months throughout the Maritimes. For a complete list, please visit arpeggiohealthservices.com.
