We are proud to announce the launch of a new program, Mental Health First Aid for Seniors (CACC 160). The content of this course was developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, and is delivered by Douglas College faculty members who are certified instructors for Mental Health First Aid for Seniors. The course “is intended to increase the capacity of seniors, families (informal caregivers), friends, staff in care settings and communities to promote mental health in seniors, prevent mental illness and suicide wherever possible in seniors and intervene early when problems first emerge.” (Mental Health Commission of Canada). Registration is easy: simply call Continuing Education Registration at 604-527-5472 and quote course registration number by date & location as follows. Classes are planned for January 19 and 26 in Coquitlam (CRN 11279/registration deadline: Jan 17th) and February 9/10 in New Westminster (CRN 11283/registration deadline: Feb 7th).
