The Role of the 1st Aid Mental Health Champion

A 1st Aid Champion for Mental Health in the workplace is the person to go to if anyone goes through some form of mental health issue. Their role is to help guide the person in distress to the relevant help that they need. Their job is to be able to use their knowledge and experience to spot someone developing a mental health issue. They will, therefore, be prepared to intervene before it escalates.

It is important to remember that being a 1st Aid Mental Health Champion, they are there to support an individual and it doesn’t qualify anyone as a therapist. Instead, they are there to non-judgmentally support an individual; and encourage them to access the professional help available.
