Frequently asked questions

What is the role of a Mental Health First Aider?


A mental health first aider's role in the workplace is to act as a first point of contact for anyone struggling with a mental health issue. They provide support and guidance to their colleagues, as well as being an advocate for mental wellbeing in the workplace and endorsing positive change.

In the role as mental health first aider, they should be comfortable discussing mental health issues and be able to provide colleagues with basic advice, as well as encouraging them to access relevant resources to help them with their problems.

A business can benefit from having mental health first aiders on site to help spot the signs and symptoms of developing mental illness and intervening before it escalates into a much bigger issue. They are not qualified to diagnose what mental health condition a person is suffering from but can offer valuable help and guidance to colleagues to make their working life easier.
