Mental Health First Aiders


Mental Health First Aiders


Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help offered to a person developing a mental health issue, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health issue or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis appears to have been resolved. The aims of Mental Health First Aid are to:

  • Preserve life where a person may be at risk of harm to themselves or others
  • Provide help to prevent the mental health issue from becoming more serious
  • Promote recovery of good mental health
  • Provide comfort to a person with a mental health issue

Wilson James has a new dedicated team of Mental Health First Aiders. This group of people have been trained to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

It is important to note that the Wilson James MHFAs are not counsellors or therapists and cannot diagnose or offer advice.
