Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here with Love Your Life to Death. I am here with
my friend Suzanne Witt-Foley. I have just taken Mental Health First Aid.
I have had Suzanne on my Rogers television show #RealLifeTalks, I have
had Suzanne on my #IJustShowedUp Radio Show and today we are talking
about Mental Health First Aid…And I loved It! It has taken two years for me
to finally take it (Yep… She did it!)
We have just spent two full Saturdays taking this course and I implore
and encourage everyone to take this course. It is as valuable as CPR.
Suzanne adds; and not even that, what I talk about often is the fact that most people have their CPR training and when you ask a group of people how many
have actually used it, a lot of the time you will find only a few and yet, it is something that we all keep taking because we know we might be able to save a life. That is truly valuable.
With mental health first aid one in three of us struggle some point in our
lifetime and with so many of us experiencing mental health problems or illness, doesn’t it make sense to learn and support one another? If you take this
training you can use it almost every day!
We learned about anxiety, depression, and psychotic disorders but also
about substance abuse and the opioid crisis. We have a crisis on our hands and
this information is invaluable. (She is a really good instructor too!)
There is Mental Health First Aid Training all around isn’t it? It is offered in 26 countries around the world. I can travel and teach anywhere in Canada.
You can always go on the mental health website or my website to look
for training or also if you have a workplace that would like training
I can come to you.
I encourage every employer and everyone to take Mental Health First Aid,
and I feel so much more empowered. Thank you SO much!
Check it out everyone… Suzane Witt-Foley thank you.
Let’s hug it out in a minute!
