JUST 034: Mental Health First Aid Canada for Northern Peoples

The Mental Health First Aid Canada for Northern Peoples course is guided by a number of important principles including respect, cooperation, community, harmony, generosity, and resourcefulness. This northern version of the basic course integrates material that reflects the experiences of Aboriginal peoples - First Nation, Inuit, and Metis - as these peoples make up a large segment of the northern population. In addition, this course addresses the importance of holism and balance. The whole person: mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual - must be considered when providing mental health first aid.

Fall & Winter course offerings to be announced.
