Training for clinicians, social service/health workers and also general public.
Mental Health workshops and training provide opportunities for increased mental health and addictions awareness and knowledge, and stigma reduction in our community and in the workplace.
Our Wellness Now training and workshops are staffed by knowledgeable and experienced professionals. We go into our community and local workplaces to increase awareness and knowledge about mental health and addictions, and decrease stigma through trainings, presentations, workshops and displays.
The courses and workshops offered by CMHA Peel Dufferin have been designed to increase mental health and addictions awareness, and reduce stigma in our communities and workplaces.
Mental health training – particularly ASIST, SafeTALK, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and Trauma related training – covers sensitive and often difficult topics, which can be triggering for some people.
If you are experiencing problems with your mental well-being (e.g., anxiety, depression, insomnia etc.) we recommend you consult with your preferred health care professional before deciding to register for a workshop.
If you are a survivor of an attempt or a survivor of suicide loss within the last 18 months, the topics discussed during training may be very difficult and/or triggering for you.
If at any time during your training you are feeling triggered please consult the facilitator(s) or contact 24.7 Crisis Support Peel Dufferin at 905-278-9036 or toll free at 1-888-811-2222.
