Mental Health First-Aid for the Veteran Community

This Mental Health First Aid for the Veteran Community workshop is tailored to address the needs of CAF Veterans and the people who care for and about them. Participants in this course could vary immensely, but all will have some connection to the Veteran Community.
The two-day (13 hour) MHFA Veteran Community course aims to: 

  • Increase the skills and confidence to engage in effective conversations about mental health in the Veteran community 
  • Promote greater recognition of the most common mental health problems and illnesses 
  • Decrease stigma and discrimination around mental health problems and illnesses 
  • Increase confidence, and willingness, to provide help to others 
  • Improve mental health of the MHFA participant her/himself
