If you’ve taken a physical first aid course, you’ve learned the skills needed to help someone experiencing a sudden illness or injury. People can also experience mental health crisis, and it is important that more Canadians know how to provide help in these situations too.
Mental Health First Aid Basic is intended for adults interacting with adults (18 years and older). Upon completion of the course, you will be well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with your family, friends, community, and workplace.
Mental Health First Aid Basic is a 12-hour course. The course discusses mental disorders including substance-related disorders, mood-related disorders, anxiety and trauma-related disorders, and psychotic disorders.
First aid skills for the following situations are learned:
- Substance overdose
- Suicidal behaviour
- Panic attack
- Acute stress reaction
- Psychotic episode
Registration fee: $200. This event is presented by CMHA North and West Vancouver.
