Core ICS Mental Health Training
Core ICS Mental Health Training builds on the foundation provided in Core ICS Health with a specific focus on mental health issues for professionals working with Indigenous people in British Columbia. The Core ICS Mental Health is specific to those who work in the mental health field and the goal is to improve access to mental health services and mental health outcomes for Aboriginal people.
The training is designed for non-Aboriginal mental health professionals working in PHSA, Regional Health Authorities, Ministry of Health and their partner agencies. The curriculum is intended as introductory training and is supplemented by the Nation and region specific training provided by regional health authorities or Indigenous groups.
Learning is self-paced over an eight-week window and typically takes between nine-eleven hours to complete, though this could be longer or shorter depending on your style of learning.
This version of the training is not accredited by The College of Family Physicians of Canada.
At the end of the training you will receive a certificate.
