During the months of September and October, two MHREC team members are undergoing a Mental Health First Aid training course.
The course provides some useful information on how to assist a person developing a mental health problem as well as persons who has a history of a mental illness or longer-term mental health problems.
The course consists of 12 contact learning hours which are delivered through 4 sessions of 3 hours each. This course is not intended as a therapy or support group; rather an education course like similar to a standard First Aid Course. Once the training course is complete, the two MHREC team members will be disseminating the information and practical know how with other team members.
