Do you know what to do if someone is experiencing a mental health crisis?
If you would like to learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and how to provide help, please join us for Mental Health First Aid (MHFA). Anyone can benefit from MHFA, including family members affected by mental health problems, health care providers, and front line workers.
About MHFA Canada
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) gives people the skills to provide that early help that is so important in recovery. MHFA is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.
Mental Health First Aid training takes place over a full two days. Attendance for the entire training is required for certification.
When: January 23 and January 24, 2019
Time: 8:15 am – 4:15 pm
Where: CMHA Hamilton, 131 John Street South. Hamilton, ON, L8N 2C3
The cost of the training will be $150.00 per person (which includes a MHFA manual, lunch and refreshments).
