Canada has an aging population. For the first time in history, there are more people aged 65 years and older in Canada than children under the age of 15 years. The likelihood of experiencing a mental health problem or illness in a given year increases as of age 69 and currently, men aged 80 and older have the highest suicide rates in Canada.
Learn how to best support Canada's aging population facing challenges such as dementia, anxiety, depression, delirium, psychosis and more. Mental Health First Aid for Seniors is an evidence-based program of the Mental Health Commission of Canada, intended to increase the capacity of friend/family caregivers and staff in care settings and communities to promote mental health in seniors, prevent mental illness and suicide wherever possible and intervene early when problems first emerge.
Course content and resource materials are based on best practice guidelines and were developed in consultation with Canadian experts in the field of geriatric psychiatry. The curriculum was developed for the Mental Health Commission of Canada at Trillium Health Partners, an Ontario-based healthcare organization which prioritizes seniors’ health and wellness.
