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.
Anyone can benefit from MHFA training. It is open to members of the general public. Families affected by mental health problems, teachers, health service providers, emergency workers, frontline workers who deal with the public, volunteers, human resources professionals, employers and community groups are just a few of the groups who have benefited from MHFA.

HEAL0090 safeTALK

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.
This workshop will be delivered by Conestoga Counselors who have been trained on safeTALK methodology. safeTALK is a standardized workshop designed to prepare anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them directly to a trained helper.
By participating in a three-hour workshop, you will learn the steps of Talk, Ask, Listen, and Keep safe. The workshop incorporates video clips, discussion and practice to help you learn these important skills.
