The Red Cross First Aid App: A Great Resource

| Jeff McKillop |

November is CPR awareness month.  A little bit of training and preparedness can go a long way and potentially save lives.

Red Cross CPR and First Aid courses are available everywhere.  The cost is reasonable and the instructors are fabulous.  It’s true you lose one day (or two) of your weekend to complete your training but it is time well invested.

The Canadian Red Cross has also made a great app available to download onto your mobile devices.  It is comprehensive, provides a careful overview of how to help in most emergency situations, and it is free.

Man Therapy: Australian Style

| Jeff McKillop |

From time to time, we like to point you to superb mental health websites.  This website, Man Therapy, is an Australian mental health care initiative attempting to reduce depression and suicide among men.

It uses both humor and facts to send the message that suicide rates among Australian men are high and that help is available.

This a well-designed website and clearly understands what appeals to men and how to begin the conversation without shame.
