Bringing Mental Health Resources to Long-Term Care In Canada
Bringing mental health resources to long-term care will equip long-term care staff with the capacity to deliver training that builds a common baseline of knowledge on what mental health is, why it matters, and what to do when mental health needs are identified in oneself and/or a peer. This program will not only build on the unique complexities in long-term care through a customized version of the Working Mind program, but it will also implement a train the trainer model so staff can administer the custom course in their long-term care home.
