Andy Barker, a MHFA England instructor gives us his insight into the importance of mental health.
So, what is mental health? It’s a question I ask my Mental Health First Aid trainees at the start of a course. It usually opens up a lively debate. Mental health is something we all have. In the same way that we have physical health. We know that at times, our physical health can deteriorate and we accept bouts of illness as inevitable.
