Course Information

A little bit about your instructor…

Suzanne Witt-Foley is a dynamic and experienced speaker and educator, having created and delivered hundreds of presentations nationally. She is one of Canada’s leading MHFA instructors with over a decade of experience.  She has delivered over 150 In- Person Mental Health First Aid-Basic Courses alone and certified more than 3000 participants. Yes!  This represents close to 10% of all Basic Canadian courses delivered.

Now we can keep growing with the new virtual option…

Mental Health First Aid – Virtual is a highly interactive virtual adaptation of the Mental Health First Aid training program. Using a blended learning model, this 9-hour course is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance-use issues.

What are participants saying?

Suzanne has taught more than 300 virtual sessions and certified over 3000 virtual participants since January 2021. The sessions are a huge success. Here are a  few of the comments:

“The polls, videos and breakout rooms were great – really broke up the course so it’s not just listening to someone talk all day.”

“Suzanne, you were impressive in your ease with the material, your ability to move with the conversations and adapt to the context.  You moved things along without appearing to rush.  You are a firm and capable facilitator, combining a personal and professional approach in a natural, authentic way that built confidence in your leadership.  I was full of admiration!”

“Well worth the time – I learned a lot that I can apply to myself, my family, friends, colleagues.”

“Suzanne is a great instructor! I was fortunate enough to have taken MHFA twice with you. Once in person, and virtually the second. You were the reason I signed up again this second time, and I really enjoyed my first time taking MHFA with you. You can tell you really love what you do, because it definitely shows in the course as you teach!”

“Just want to thank Suzanne for delivering the course to us as if this was her first time presenting it – it was fresh, animated, she pivoted to the needs of the class she had with us – I had absolutely no sense of this being a repetitive task for her, or that she was on auto pilot in any way. I know from experience how easily a training session can become “canned” – this was engaging and stimulating. THANK YOU – a participant in my 200th class
