What is First Aid for Mental Health?

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem, or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves. It includes the full range of mental disorders and associated crises.

Why is First Aid for Mental Health Important? 

 

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life.

Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don’t tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. Because of this many people do not notice or recognise stress signs in their friends and colleagues until something happens to cause them to experience a mental health issue and then they do not know how to provide support.

With a greater knowledge of mental health first aid some issues could be avoided before they happen and other could be eased to enable a happier, healthier workplace.
