The 4-hour Mental Health First Aid for the Suicidal Person course is based on the revised Mental Health First Aid Guidelines for Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviours. It teaches participants about how to identify the warning signs for suicide, how to confidently support a person in crisis, and how to have a conversation with someone experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviours. It is a stand alone course that complements the 12-hour Standard MHFA course, Blended MHFA courses and the 14 hour Youth MHFA course. Any interested adult can attend this course.
It is important to note that this is not a postvention course and is not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide.
