What is Mental Health First Aid Canada Training?
MHFA Canada complies with the Mental Health Commission of Canada's 12 hour training syllabus.
It covers an introduction to mental health and mental health problems, substance-related disorders, mood-related disorders, anxiety and trauma-related disorders and psychotic disorders. Participants will gain skills for crisis situations, such as, suicidal behaviour, overdoses, panic attacks, reactions to traumatic events and psychotic episodes.
Attendance is taken very seriously and is recorded each day. Participants will be required to provide an email address which will be forwarded to the Mental Health Commission of Canada. Participants will receive an email from the MHCC and an official certificate will follow.
There is no written exam, however, at the end of day two each participant will be required to complete a course and instructor(s) feedback form which will be forwarded to the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada a Mental Health First Aid Canada course should be refreshed every two years.
What is ASIST?
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training is a two day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support immediate safety. Participants do not need any formal training to attend - anyone 16 or older can learn to use the ASIST model.
