Useful health resources
In partnership with other organizations, Entité 3 offers free health training and workshops.
The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course is a 12-hour course open to everyone.
This training aims to give participants the skills to recognize the early signs of mental health problems and to better manage the most common problems that may occur in people around them, in a family member, a friend or a colleague.
Just as first aid is provided for physical injuries, mental health first aid is provided until appropriate treatment is available or the crisis resolves.
The Chronic Disease Management Training consists of a series of 6 free workshops offered to people living with a chronic disease and their spouses. The workshops cover a variety of topics to improve well-being (e.g. symptom management, communication, appropriate use of medication, problem solving, etc.). These workshops encourage participants to use self-management skills and then adapt them to their own needs and lifestyles. Each participant receives a free copy of the Living Well guide.
Watch for our next training sessions.
