The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course was originally developed in AU by an educator and mental health consumer and a professor and mental health researcher with the aim to close the gap between what we know and what we don’t know about mental health care and recovery.

Mental Health First Aid Canada is an evidence-based program managed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) since 2010. In 2017, as part of her programming and development work with Sanctuary, Terresa certified with the Mental Health Commission of Canada to deliver Mental Health First Aid training.

Terresa offers Mental Health First Aid in the Central Okanagan and if manageable, in other regions of BC or Canada. For more information on Mental Health First Aid visit To learn more abou the Mental Health Commission of Canada visit
