The three-year project aims to educate service providers, employers, immigrants and temporary foreign workers on early identification and intervention of mental health problems.

South Essex Community Council will facilitate Mental Health First Aid courses, as well as create an informative mental health resource that will be available in four languages: Arabic, English, Low German and Spanish.

They will provide training to 42 local businesses and organizations, certifying approximately 270 participants in mental health first aid and reaching more than 20,000 individuals through the mental health resource

The project is funded by a  Six 4 Six Community Granting Initiative awarded by Green Shield Canada. The grant marked the 60th anniversary of Green Shield Canada along with their 60-year history of social responsibility and charitable giving.
