Now as ever, we urge our Mental Health First Aider community to be kind to yourselves. Keep practicing your self-care, and set safe boundaries for yourself when supporting others. Prioritise your own wellbeing - if you need to step back from your role as a Mental Health First Aider to focus on your own mental health, please do so.
