It provides information for initial support to adults who are developing mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.
The topics that will be covered vary from course to course, as it is developed to cover the more relevant topics to what we may encounter on the beach, as well as what we may encounter in our workplaces.
These topics include but are not limited to:

  • Substance use problems
