Mental Health First Aid Training.

Sad Man In Field
Mental Health First Aid training improves understanding of the mental health challenges people experience, their options for treatment and helpful first aid strategies. Participants report increased confidence in their ability to offer Mental Health First Aid which enables early access to help. The training also decreases stigma and discrimination that many people with mental health and addictions challenges experience.
