I f you’ve taken a physical First Aid course, you’ve learned the skills needed to help someone experiencing a sudden illness or injury. People can also have mental health crisis, and it is important that more Canadians know how to provide help in these situations, too.

 

If I sprain my ankle, chances are you’ll know what to do. If I have a panic attack, chances are you won’t.
