Did you know CMHA Hamilton offers Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)?

About MHFA Canada

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) gives people the skills to provide that early help that is so important in recovery. MHFA is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.

Who Should take MHFA?


Anyone can benefit from Mental Health First Aid.  Just to mention a few...

  • members of the general public
  • families affected by mental health problems
  • teachers
  • health service providers
  • emergency workers
  • frontline workers who deal with the public
  • volunteers
  • human resources professionals
  • employers
  • community groups

If you would like more information about Mental Health First Aid, you can email CMHA Hamilton, call 905-521-0090 or visit Mental Health First Aid Canada.
