Mental Health First Aid Standard is an evidence-based program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada and moves away from a traditional medical model, focusing instead on a community-based approach to mental health support and intervention. The program employs a highly interactive blended model comprised of 3 modules. Upon successful completion of all three learning modules participants earn a nationally recognized certification issued by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.

Limited spots are available. Registration closes on April 23, 2021.

Register by emailing Brittney Bertrand at bbertrand@mnbc.ca.
