The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) offers occupational training for public service workers to know how to respond to patrons in crisis, distress, or in need of resources – the goal to develop a level of compassion and understanding of the complexities surrounding mental health, and the complexities of support services.
MHCC offers these two-day training sessions throughout the year, in Toronto and across Canada. The training ranges from $150-$350.
iStudents for Mental Health (the Mental Health Working Group of MiSC) is offering full scholarships to cover the cost of training (plus stipend of $33 for lunch, transportation, etc.) for three successful applicants.
