For Manitoba Teachers' Society Members:
For Teacher Candidates (Faculty of Education students, 4th or 5th year):
The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for Adults who Interact with Youth training course was developed to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
MHFA Canada teaches mental health first aid skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counselors or mental health professionals. The philosophy behind MHFA Canada is that mental health crisis, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention. If a crisis does arise, then members of the public can take action that may reduce the harm that could result.
MHFA Canada: For Adults Who Interact with Youth focuses on mental health problems and first aid for youth ages 12 to 24. Most mental disorders develop gradually. The information in this course is
designed to be sensitive to the unique aspects of mental health problems in young people. It is meant to assist education professionals, health providers, parents and other adults in the identification of mental health problems and appropriate first aid intervention strategies.
