I am a psychologist and a mental health awareness trainer. In my capacity as a National Trainer for the MHFA England CIC I have helped to train approximately 300 instructors in the English Mental Health First Aid programme. This is a course designed to train ordinary members of the public how to help a person in mental and emotional distress and ensure that they get to the right kinnd of help as early as possible. It also challenges the stigma and discrimination that of surround the subject of mental health.
I also use social media to help promote a dialogue regarding mental heal with the aim of moving towards a more integrated policy to health and wellbeing.
