Aberystwyth University Mental Health First Aiders

The Mental Health First Aiders are a group of staff members that are trained in Mental Health First Aid. They are the first point of call for both students and staff who might be experiencing distress or mental health difficulties, and are able to sign-post to the appropriate services.

The Mental Health First Aider’s primary role is to signpost individuals to the appropriate services that are available, they are not trained practitioners and cannot provide treatment. They are able to provide a one off signposting service but cannot be used as a form of ongoing treatment or as a long term support service.
