Mental Health First Aid

Date & Time: See website

As search and rescue professionals, we become involved in incidents that can have a long-
lasting impact on our mental health. In addition, the subjects we are tasked to locate andrescue are often experiencing a mental health crisis.

Mental Health First Aid training can help reduce the stigma associated with mental health, increase awareness of the signs and symptoms of the most common mental health problems, and increase confidence when engaging with someone experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada offers a variety of courses, both in person and online, at various locations across Canada. We encourage SARscene 2021 attendees to find a date and time that works for you.

Cost: Prices vary. See website for details.
