Irwin & Colton meet Poppy Jaman - CEO Mental Health First Aid England and non-executive director for Public Health England.
In this video, Poppy discusses, why mental health has risen up the health and safety agenda so rapidly? What are some basic steps one can take to improve mental health? What an organisation can do to improve mental health in the work place? and what parity of esteem would mean for the UK?
Mental Health First Aid England’s mission is to train one in ten of the population in England in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) skills. By reducing stigma through understanding, they hope to break down barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.
