What is mental health first aid?

Mental health first aid is giving help to someone developing a mental illness, experiencing a decline in mental health, or in a mental health crisis.

Mental health first aider is responsible for:

  • Recognising the signs and symptoms of mental health problems
  • Providing confidential support and assurance
  • Offering options for receiving professional help

Is it a legal requirement to have a mental health first aider in the workplace?

While having a mental health first aider is a recommendation, not a requirement, it is considered just as important as having a first aider.

Employers should always be taking steps to protect their employee’s health; mental health included.
