CMHA Psychological Health and Safety: The Essentials

The Essentials training serves as an introduction to Psychological Health and Safety and gives you the foundational knowledge required to begin addressing psychological health and safety (PHS) in your workplace. This training takes a high-level approach to themes covered in the Professional Certificate. We recommend The Essentials training for those seeking an introduction to Psychological Health and Safety. For in-depth and interactive training, we recommend the Professional Certificate. If you have already completed the Professional Certificate, we do not recommend you attend The Essentials training unless you are looking for a refresher.

The Essentials is a 3-hour online, interactive training. Using the Standard as a guide, participants will learn about the history and development of PHS in Canada, gain understanding of core concepts like psychological health, safety, and risk, and will receive an expert overview of the core components of the Standard.
