Why Do I Need It?

Did you know that the risk of suicide for men in skilled trades like plumbing is 35% higher than the national average suicide rate for men? Or for women in health care professions the suicide rate is 24% higher than the female national average?[1]

Or did you know that the top five industries affected by depression are private and public transit, real estate, social services, manufacturing and personal services? And that the same study saw a correlation between the incidence of depression and frequent or difficult interaction with the public?[2]

Mental health in the workplace affects us all, and sometimes in completely surprising ways.
Becoming a Mental Health First Aider will enable you to ensure that your workplace is safe. After all, when suicide is the leading cause of death in adults under the age of 50, we could all work together to ensure the safest and most productive work environments.
