Mental Health First Aid Lead, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences
Over the past six years Christina has provided mental health training to various industries across Canada on behalf of Ontario Shores. She has appeared on both Breakfast Television and Global News to discuss the importance of educating people how to better support employee mental health. Over the past two years she’s trained over 6000 people in Mental Health First Aid which is very similar to standard first aid except you learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental illnesses rather than physical ones. Along with this training she developed additional 3-hour and 2-hour seminars for organizations who are unable to fulfill the 2-day requirement for the MHFA course. Here I have trained approximately an additional 500 people over the past year. Her goal is to continue educating and informing people on the importance of a mentally safe and healthy work environment.
