The role of a Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is to be a point of contact for an employee who is experiencing a mental health issues or emotional distress. This interaction could range from having an initial conversation, through to supporting the person to get appropriate help. Mental Health First Aiders are not trained to be therapists or psychiatrists but they can offer initial support through non-judgemental listening and guidance. Please check your local area for information on contacting your MHFA.
