NEWS:

Suicide Prevention Day is September 10, 2020


Upcoming Events:

As Manitoba has now eased the public health safety criteria, PMH is in planning to reschedule these trainings.

We wish to assure you that we have taken into account the safety measures set out by public health:

·        we have reduced class sizes to assure physical distancing of 2 metres/6 feet

·        we will be cleaning all high touch environments such as table tops and arms of chairs

·        participants can chose to bring their own mask as well as pen etc.

For all the following trainings we will be adding additional dates throughout the fall and winter if permitted, thus we will circulate notice of this well in advance.

If you Organization would like a session specifically for your staff please note that this request will be considered based on trainer availability.
