What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental health first aid is the help given to someone developing a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, or substance misuse- or who is in a mental health crisis, like panic attacks, self-injury, aggressive behaviour.

Mental health first aid is the response given until appropriate professional support is received or until the crisis resolves.
