Mental Health First Aid and the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace: A Lesson in Implementation

Description: One of the most commonly asked questions about the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace is about options for training and building the confidence of staff and management in support of the recommendations of the National Standard. This webinar focuses on the successful implementation of Mental Health First Aid at workplaces throughout Ontario as a model for companies and organizations across Canada.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Research shows that MHFA training leads to a decrease in stigmatizing attitudes as well as an increase in confidence to provide help. Since 2007, more than 500,000 Canadians have taken the course. This webinar covers the content and impact of the MHFA program, and options for course delivery. Participants also learn how Humber College became a leader among Ontario colleges, inspiring administrative and academic staff to take the course and become more effective and confident when speaking about mental health.

Guest Speakers:

  • Maureen Carnegie, Mental Health Aid Project Facilitator, Humber College
  • Sjors Reijers, Manager, National Program Promotions and Business Development, Mental Health First Aid Canada
