What is Mental Health First Aid?

As Mental Health First Aiders we’re here to
provide help if you’re experiencing mental health issues or emotional distress. We are trained to listen reassure and respond,
even in a crisis. And our conversations are always confidential. When it’s appropriate we can support and encourage
you to access professional help, as well as guide you to the right place. We’ve been trained by Mental Health First
Aid England and you can recognise us by our green lanyards. There are over 280 of us based across Imperial’s
campuses and you can contact any one of us. A full list is available online, please see
the link below. We’re all here to help and listen, whenever
you need us. The promotion of good mental health and a
healthy work-life balance is no longer seen as an optional extra, but a matter of key
strategic importance for the College. Mental Health First Aid is a crucial part
of that and I’d encourage everyone in our community to famliarise themselves with the
support and training that’s available.
