Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
The Mental Health First Aid Canada program 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. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is help provided to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis or a person who might be developing a mental health problem.  Similar to physical first aid which is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is administered to an individual experiencing a mental health crisis until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved. Anyone can benefit from MHFA. 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.
