Training to Promote Psychological Health and Safety

Description: Knowledge is Power: Equip your Workplace with the Skills to Take Action


This month’s webinar features 2 training programs available through the Mental Health Commission of Canada: Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and The Working Mind (TWM). MHFA is a course that allows participants to gain the confidence and the skills to respond effectively to emerging mental health problems and crises. MHFA has been proven to reduce stigma, and increase confidence and willingness to help others. TWM focuses on stigma reduction, increasing resiliency skills, and acquiring skills to manage stress. This course helps staff recognize signs of declining and poor mental health in themselves and in others.

Champion in this field, Nova Scotia’s Public Service Commission also discusses their strategy to train staff members in both programs.

Guest Speakers:

  • Carolyn Campbell, Senior Consultant- Psychological Health and Safety, Nova Scotia Public Service Commission
  • Amy Fogarty, Mental Health First Aid, Mental Health Commission of Canada
  • Sue Mercer, Opening Minds, Mental Health Commission of Canada
