Training Overview

The National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety in the workplace (the Standard) was launched in January 2013 to promote employees' psychological health and prevent psychological harm due to workplace factors. This has helped to raise awareness of the need for organizations to address mental health stigma in their workplace and help people better manage potential or developing mental health problems.

Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is provided until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training was developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) to improve mental health literacy and provide the skills and knowledge to help people better manage potential or developing mental health problems in themselves, a family member, a friend or a colleague.

This course is facilitated by Workplace Safety and Prevention Services. Instructors have been trained and certified through Mental Health First Aid Canada.
