Mental Health First Aid Trainings

Mental Health First Aid Canada trainingis being offered at no cost to employees.

The next scheduled course is this October. It is scheduled over four mornings: October 17, 19, 23 & 25, from 8:45am-12:00pm each day. (Attendance at all dates required).

At Western, mental health issues affect our staff, faculty, students and their friends and families. In fact, one in four Canadian workers will experience a mental health issue within the next 12 months, and 500,000 are absent from work on any given day due to a mental health problem.

Participants in the course will learn how to help someone showing signs of a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. To date over 900 Western leaders, faculty and staff have completed the Mental Health First Aid certification program.
