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) 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.

Canada has an aging population. There are now more people aged 65 years and older in Canada than children under the age of 15 years. The likelihood of experiencing a mental health problem or illness in a given year increases as of age 69 and currently, men aged 80 and older have the highest suicide rates in Canada.

MHFA for Seniors training is intended to increase the capacity of family/friend 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 available evidence and 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 visit arpeggiohealthservices.com.
