This last chapter includes advice on how to provide mental health first aid to someone who may be experiencing an episode of psychosis. These guidelines were developed by and reprinted here with permission from Mental Health First Aid Australia. These guidelines are designed to help members of the public to provide first aid to someone who may be experiencing psychosis. The role of the first aider is to assist the person until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. These guidelines are a general set of recommendations. Each individual is unique, and it is important to tailor your support to that person’s needs. So, these recommendations may not be appropriate for every person.
