Mental Health First Aid

First Aid is the help given to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained.  The aims of any first aid are:

  1. To preserve life,
  2. To prevent deterioration of injury or illness,
  3. To promote healing,
  4. To provide comfort to the ill or injured.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem or who is in a mental health crisis.  

The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

The aims of MHFA are:

  1. To preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others,
  2. To provide help to prevent the metal health problem becoming more serious,
  3. To promote the recovery of good mental health,
  4. To provide comfort to a person experiencing a mental health problem.

MHFA does not teach people to be therapists.  Rather, it teaches participants how to recognise the symptoms of mental health problems, how to provide initial help and how to go about guiding a person towards appropriate professional help.
