Making Mental Health Click!
Build Competency and Confidence: Our certification programs, including Mental Health First Aid, SafeTalk®, and ASIST®, equip your team with essential skills to support mental well-being and intervene in crises. Discover the power of knowledge and preparedness in creating a supportive environment for all employees.

Mental Health First Aid
The MHFA 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. You must be 18 years and older to attend this program.

The program does not teach people how to be therapists. It does teach people how to:

  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health problems.
  • Provide initial help.
  • Guide a person toward appropriate professional help.

Certificates are provided to attendees who complete 12 hours of training, we offer this training both in-person (as available) and virtually.
Mental Health First Aid workshops and presentations are all delivered by certified trainers.

Safe Talk ®
SafeTALK, about three hours in duration, prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.

ASIST® (Applied Suicide Intervention Training)
The ASIST workshop is for caregivers (professionals, volunteers, students and family members) who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over one million caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop. The goal of ASIST is to enhance a caregiver’s abilities to assist a person at risk to avoid suicide. By completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss suicide with a person at risk in a direct manner;
  2. Identify risk alerts and develop a safe plan related to them;
  3. Demonstrate the skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide;
  4. List the types of resources available to a person at risk of suicide, including themselves;
  5. Recognize that suicide prevention is broader than suicide intervention and includes life promotion and self-care for persons at risk and for caregivers.

Participants will receive an ASIST workbook and a Suicide First Aid Wallet Card. ASIST workshops are all delivered by certified trainers.
