New example profile of a mental health first-aider
XpertHR's Policies and documents tool has been enhanced with the addition of a sample profile of a mental health first-aider. The profile sets out the key skills required, tasks and responsibilities, and training requirements.
- Example profile of a mental health first-aider Use this model profile when seeking volunteers to take up the position and to help the workforce understand a mental health first-aider's role within your organisation.
- Letter to employees highlighting the role of mental health first-aiders within the organisation Use this model communication to explain to the workforce the role of mental health first-aiders within your organisation.
Mental health first-aiders are in place in one-third of organisations that responded to our recent survey on wellbeing initiatives in the workplace. Another quarter of respondents were planning to introduce mental health first-aiders in the 12 months following the survey, giving this initiative the potential to become the most popular health-focused programme in the future.
