Program Info:

MHFA Canada is an evidence-based training program that is designed, just like traditional first aid, to enable people to recognize symptoms and provide support until professional help can step in. It is an educational course for the public. No experience in mental health is necessary.

The goal of the course is threefold.

  1. Educate participants and help them identify signs of mental health problems in co-workers, friends, family, strangers and even themselves.

  2. Teach participants how to support the individual and to help seek appropriate treatment for them.

  3. Reduce the stigma of mental illness. More than half of people with mental health problems will be too ashamed to seek treatment.
