New French-speaking Mental Health First Aiders

Luc Therrien

Réseau santé albertain is proud to have trained 8 French-speaking Albertans in Edmonton in December 2015 and 13 more in Legal in early January 2016 as Mental Health First Aiders. The francophone population of Alberta has now access to more mental health help.

This training, offered by Luc Therrien, Director of Réseau santé albertain, offers to participants basic knowledge about substance, anxiety, mood and psychotic problems. Moreover, people learn about actions that First aiders can use to help a person in need until she accesses professional mental health or until the crisis passes.
