Provincial Government Invests $550,000 to Support Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Training

The Department of Health and Community Services has provided $550,000 in funding to the Canadian Mental Health Association to support mental health and suicide prevention training initiatives.

This funding will enable the organization to continue to partner with Lifewise NL and Richard’s Legacy Foundation for Survivors of Suicide Loss to provide essential training programs across the province.

Building upon earlier funding, 62 courses have been offered with 630 people attending training in either Mental Health First Aid, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training or SafeTalk across the province as of March.
