Mental Health First Aid Training for Local One Members
December 12, 2022

(For publicly available trainings please visit



Mental Health First Aid training provides an individual the tools necessary to initiate support for anyone who may be showing signs of a mental health or substance use concern, or experiencing a crisis, and help connect them with the appropriate care.

Many of us know how to help someone having a heart attack—we’d start CPR, or at the very least call 9-1-1. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack, or if we were concerned that a friend or co-worker might be showing signs of alcoholism.

Mental Health First Aid helps to eliminate the fear and hesitation from starting conversations relating to mental health and substance use problems. By teaching how to recognize the signs and symptoms that may be early indicators of a mental health challenge, how to listen non judgmentally and provide support, and how to steer someone toward appropriate professional services, this training creates the confidence necessary to be an effective first responder in a mental health crisis. Upon completing the course, you will have achieved the Mental Health First Aider certification which is valid for three years.

The course is delivered in two parts. The first is a 2 hour self-paced online course that must be completed prior to the in-person, instructor led session on Monday, December 12th from 10am to 4pm at the Local One Union Hall, 2nd Floor. You must complete the pre-work in order to attend the live class.

Once the class size minimum has been met, and at least one week prior to the class date, we will send you an email with the information you will need to log-in to complete your pre-work.

IATSE Members and those working under IATSE agreements may be eligible for Training Trust Fund reimbursement upon proof of successful completion.
