What is Mental Health First Response?

Mental Health First Response is the initial help given to someone that is in experiencing a Mental Health crisis. This training programme aims at giving employees and employers the skills that they may need to respond to a Mental Health Emergency that an employee or colleague is experiencing . It will teach the MHFR’s how to assist people who are developing a Mental Health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing problem or are in a Mental Health crisis, until professional help is received.
