Principles of accessibility
Ensure that all staff members and volunteers are familiar with the AODA and the four principles of accessibility.
Responding to distress
Responding appropriately to someone in distress can help them regain their balance and may even prevent a crisis. Consider additional training for your staff, such as Mental Health First Aid, to ensure they are equipped to respond to people with mental illness who are in distress. Ensure that your organization has protocols in place to deal with emergencies.
