Mental Health First Aider (MHFA)

What do mental health first aiders do? 

Mental health first aiders (MHFA) are trained to listen empathetically, recognise the signs of mental stress and crises and offer appropriate support. They are not professional therapists, but see themselves as a bridge to further resources and assistance. Their role is to provide an initial anchor point for students under stress and to support them in seeking professional help if necessary.

Further information can be found on the MHFA website.

Information on the international umbrella organisation and evidence-based courses can be found on the website of MHFA international.


How can you benefit from MHFA?

Students who find themselves in stressful situations or are confronted with mental health problems can turn to our Mental Health First Aiders in confidence. The discussions are confidential, respectful and non-judgemental. An appreciative, resource-orientated attitude forms the basis for the work of the MHFAs.
