WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID?

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is recieved or until the crisis is resolved. The concept is based on the model of medical first aid.

Some mental health problems are more common than many physical health problems. While people often know a lot about physical illness, most people have little knowledge about mental illness. The lack of understanding promotes fear and stigma. It prevents people from seeking help early and seeking the best kind of help. It also keeps people from providing appropriate supports to friends, colleagues, family members and people around them simply because they do not know how.

Developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, the TWO DAY course aims to teach people to:

-Identify when a person may be danger to themselves or others and take steps to preserve a life.
-Recognise the early signs of mental health problems and provide help to prevent more serious problems from developing.
-Provide comfort to someone with a mental health problem and support them in the recovery of their mental health.
-Guide a person towards appropriate professional help.

COST: $175- (incl. of reference materials and handbook)
