Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional health is obtained.

The aims of Mental Health First Aid are:

  • To enhance understanding of mental health problems and how they can impact on individuals and society.
  • To develop skills, motivation, knowledge and confidence in offering help to those with symptoms of mental illness.
  • To guide towards appropriate professional help.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is appropriate for anyone from a voluntary or professional background who comes into contact with the general public and is interested in learning more about mental health problems, how they impact on individuals and how best to provide support.
