Mental Health First Aid Standard (Virtual)
September 20 @ 1:00 pm - September 21 @ 4:30 pm
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a nationally recognized certification course developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The course aims to develop the skills of participants in providing help to a person experiencing a mental health and/or substance use problem or crisis. Just like physical first aid is provided until medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate support is found or until the crisis is resolved.
The virtual course is delivered in a blended learning format.
Two weeks prior to the course start date, participants will receive log-in details for the Learning Management System. In the two weeks leading up to the facilitator led virtual classrooms, participants must complete:
- Module One – self directed learning (2hrs)
- Self directed reading of the participant reference guide ~150 pages (3hrs)

- Module Three – facilitator led session (3.5hrs) **3.25hrs plus break time**[1-430pm CST (SK Time)]
