In this episode I speak with Simon Blake, OBE. He is the Chief Executive at Mental Health First Aid, Deputy Chair of Stonewall, and a Champion of Pride 365.
He is the former CEO of National Union of Students and Brook, the young people’s sexual health charity.
Simon explains the importance of Mental Health training and how MHFA are focused on providing support to organisations. He explains how companies can adopt the MHFA program to look after the Mental Health of employees.
We also discuss how we can stop the stigma surrounding Mental Health by creating a tipping point and changing the culture.
Simon also provides insight on his work/life balance and what we can do to look after ourselves and our own Mental Health.
