WHY IS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID SO VITAL?
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 a person in a mental health crisis. MHFA is given until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis appears to have passed.
The aims of physical first aid are to preserve life, prevent further harm, promote recovery and bring comfort to the injured person. MHFA shares these aims 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
