Mental Health First Aid at Sussex

We have a network of Mental Health First Aiders who are available to support staff.

Mental Health First Aiders are trained to listen non-judgementally, provide support and reassurance and signpost to appropriate professional services.

If you are experiencing poor mental health - or are concerned about a colleague - talking to a trained Mental Health First Aider could help. Take a look through the profiles below to find someone you'd be comfortable talking to.

We will be training more MHFAiders so do keep visiting this page as we add more profiles.



Information sharing in mental health emergencies at work

Data protection law allows organisations to share personal information in an urgent or emergency situation, including to help them prevent loss of life or serious physical, emotional or mental harm.

This guidance from Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is aimed at giving employers greater certainty about sharing information about their workers in the event of a mental health emergency. It provides advice on when and how it is appropriate to share workers’ information in such an emergency, even if you haven’t thought about this before.
