BECOME A MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIDER

If you’ve taken a physical first aid course, you’ve learned the skills needed to help someone experiencing a sudden illness or injury.

People can also have mental health crisis, and it is important that more Canadians know how to provide help in these situations too.

"If I sprain my ankle, chances are you’ll know what to do. If I have a panic attack, chances are you won’t."
