Meet Jason Alderson, the Owner and Lead Instructor of Living Inspired
Hi, I’m Jason Alderson, the owner and lead instructor of Living Inspired Mental Health Training.
I have been a member of the Canadian Forces for over 18 years and during that time, I have been deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. I know first-hand the challenges and struggles that come with mental health issues, both personally and professionally.
That’s why I became a Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) Instructor and Unit Coordinator for several hundred soldiers in my unit. I wanted to help them cope with stress, trauma, and adversity, and build resilience and well-being.
To further my knowledge and training, I attended Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training. MHFA is the support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis.
I was so impressed by the MHFA course that I decided to become a certified instructor myself. Since then, I have been teaching MHFA courses to companies, organizations and government agencies across Ontario.
My mission is to empower people with the skills and strategies to recognize the signs of mental distress and provide effective help. My vision is to create a culture of compassion and support where everyone can thrive mentally and emotionally.
I believe that mental health is a vital aspect of our well-being and we all need support sometimes. Whether you are looking for yourself or someone else, I can help you learn how to:
– Talk about declines in your mental well-being
– Discuss professional and other supports that could help with recovery to improved mental well-being
– Reach out to these supports
– Assist in a mental health or substance use crisis
– Use MHFA actions to maintain your own mental well-being
Are you ready to join me on this journey of learning and growth? Whether you prefer virtual or in-person training, I have a course option that suits your needs. All my courses are offered in collaboration with the Mental Health Commission of Canada.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
