MHFA Adults: Youth Interaction (FAID-1802)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), offered through Canadian Mental Health Association, training course was developed to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA teaches MHFA skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counselors or mental health professionals. The philosophy behind MHFA is that mental health crisis, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention. If crisis do arise, then members of the public can take action that may reduce the harm that could result. This course focuses on mental health problems and first aid for youth ages 12 to 24.
