Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
MHFA Basic is intended for adults interacting with adults (18 years and older). This course focuses on the four most common mental health disorders including substance related, mood related, anxiety and trauma related, and psychotic disorders. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with their family, friends, communities, and workplaces.


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.

Learn to RECOGNIZE a change in behaviour RESPOND with a confident conversation and GUIDE to appropriate resources and support. 

The course is FREE but bring your own lunch. 

Sponsored by the SOS Peer Support program with funding from Interior Health Authority.
