Mental Health First Aid Is Not Therapy

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an exciting workshop that trains participants to provide initial help to a person developing a mental health problem or in a crisis. Much like someone who’s trained in a physical first aid can provide, MHFA teaches people to know the signs of a problem and where to turn for help.

This training was adapted for Canadians by the Mental Health Commission of Canada and is a nationally recognized certification training course. However, please note that MHFA training does not qualify someone to diagnose mental health conditions.

Our Training Philosophy

MHFA training is primarily created on the thought that mental health crises may be avoided through early intervention. This course serves to educate the public to take action in supporting a person experiencing a mental health crisis until appropriate professional treatment is received.

Elevation Mind Aid provides high-level facilitation, professional instructors, and comprehensive training solutions. We work intensively with all our clients to offer training strategies compatible with their specific workplace environments.

Individual customers will benefit from the opportunities to make community connections at the Elevation Mind Aid workshops. Individuals, small group workplaces, and large corporations all find a place at Elevation Mind Aid with MHFA training and education programs.
