  • recognize signs that a young person may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health or substance use crisis
  • initiate conversations that encourage a young person to talk about a mental health or substance use problem
  • discuss professional and other supports that could help with recovery to improved mental well-being
  • assist in a mental health or substance use crisis situation
  • check in with one’s own mental well-being and take action as needed.

This 10-hour course opens with a self-directed module (Module 1) that focuses on the information and strategies that participants will discuss and practise throughout the virtual classroom modules (Modules 2 and 3). Module 1 takes up to 2 hours to complete while Modules 2 and 3 are 4 hours in length each, including breaks.

Once all three modules are completed, participants will receive a certificate issued by the Mental Health Commission of Canada
