Instructors

 

Our instructors have completed the 5 day Mental Health First Aid Canada instructor training course offered through the Mental Health Commission of Canada.   

While our instructors have experience working in a remote location and understand the struggles and stressors associated with isolation; they strongly believe that MHFA Canada training can be beneficial for anyone - anywhere.

The team is passionate about mental wellness; they endeavour to promote mental health in the workplace and strive to encourage individuals to think about how it applies in their own lives.

Their commitment to ending the stigma associated with mental health problems is evident; as is their position on the importance of mental health education.  It is their common belief that society must have a better understanding of mental health issues and they believe this is possible through Mental Health First Aid Canada instruction.  Through this training they feel a positive change can occur in the way society responds to individuals facing mental health problems.  As a result of advocacy, increased education and acceptance their hope is that individuals facing mental health problems can feel supported and the stigma surrounding mental health issues can finally end.  

MHFA Canada instruction can be offered by an individual instructor or through co-facilitation; instructors are willing to travel throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and across Canada.
