Please join Euros Morris from the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the IP Inclusive mental health first aiders’ network, to talk about the role of the mental health first aider (MHFAer) and how they and their colleagues can support one another without the role becoming a burden.

Euros will share his experience of being a MHFAer at the IPO, and explore:

  • How the MHFA role has developed since inception
  • What has (and hasn’t) worked
  • How MHFAers are being promoted
  • Issues regarding blurred colleague/MHFAer boundaries
  • Balancing MHFA with core duties
  • Following up on MHFAer interventions

along with many other useful hints and tips.

We’d like this to be an interactive session, to allow IP sector MHFAers to inspire and learn from one another, so there will also be a chance to discuss the issues with other MHFAers from the IP Inclusive network following Euros’s talk.

The event will be chaired by Jen Unsworth (HGF), also from our MHFAers’ network.


This event is designed for trained MHFAers, or those who are considering undertaking the MHFA training. It doesn’t matter what type of organisation you work in, what role you play in it or what your career level (so long as it’s in the UK IP sector of course).

Please sign up using the Eventbrite link above (top right). If you would prefer not to use Eventbrite, please contact [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.


This event will be free, as are all of IP Inclusive's resources. This is important in order to keep IP Inclusive the right side of the paywall.

However, continuing to run IP Inclusive is expensive.
