|HEAL1810||Mental Health First Aid
Description: Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved. This course aims to improve mental health literacy, and provide the skills and knowledge to help people better manage potential or developing mental health problems in themselves, a family member, a friend or a colleague.

|HEAL0120||Road to Mental Readiness

Description: Suicide prevention is an important and growing issue among post-secondary institutions. For example, a 2011 survey of 1,600 University of Alberta students found that 7% of them had seriously considered suicide in the past year. A similar survey of over 100,000 students at US colleges and universities produced comparable results, with 6.4% of students identifying that they had seriously considered suicide within the last year.
