"[Firms should]...appoint a mental health first aider, to whom employers could speak to before deciding whether to seek professional help..."

Whilst an admirable policy, the issue would be who this person is within the firm - if a partner or member of HR, would this cause an obvious conflict of interests? If a junior member of staff, how would the person seeking help feel about talking about sensitive health matters to someone their junior in age and rank? If an external person (eg: a health advisor specifically brought in by the firm), does that person owe a duty to the firm as well as the person?
