Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Julie Perron is a certified trainer for the Youth Mental Health First Aid course, and can deliver the curriculum in an 8-hour or two consecutive 4-hour session(s). Minimum group size is 5 people. Delivered in the EqI classroom, or at your site. Must be booked approx. 3 weeks in advance to ensure availability of required course materials.
