The Mental Health Commission of Canada has developed a crisis response training course for essential workers. We know that throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, essential workers are facing a number of new challenges while at work, which may be affecting their mental health. This course is specifically designed to help provide individuals with the tools and knowledge to better understand their own mental health and the mental health of others.
Crisis Response Training - Caring for Others – will focus on how to create a safe space to have conversations about mental health and/or substance use problems. This training will prepare participants to have conversations confidently about mental health during a crisis, with their family, friends, communities, and workplaces. Participants will also be taught the skills required to respond to a mental health crisis until professional help arrives.

*** Please note this course should not serve as substitutes for Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) as it has been developed specifically for the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage all participants to complete MHFA training once in-person courses resume. ****
