Support & Guidance First Aiders for Mental Health

Left Column

To optimise the investment of Mental Health First Aid training in the workplace and to help embed it within an organisation, provision of on-going internal support and guidance for First Aiders for Mental Health can be invaluable. It helps to continue taking the mental wellbeing agenda forward, create a consistent approach and to also encourage people to talk more freely about mental health; thereby reducing stigma and creating a more positive culture.

Every organisation will have a different approach to how they support their First Aiders for Mental Health but here are some examples of support strategies which have proven successful:

  • Setting up networks (with a clear remit) for support and idea sharing
  • Putting in place a First Aider for Mental Health role and policy to ensure clarity on expectations
  • Develop and promote clear referral or assistance pathways so First Aiders for Mental Health can signpost effectively to support
  • Increase mental wellbeing literacy across the organisation to help normalise conversations around mental health
