Our guest today is Simon Blake OBE.  CEO of Mental Health First Aid England.Mental Health First Aid England has one aim - to improve the mental health of the nation. The organisation wants to see 1 in 10 of the population trained in mental health first aid, and for all of us to start considering mental health as being on a par with our physical health.As a gay man who came out during the HIV epidemic, Simon understands the importance of supporting mental health through every stage of life and work. Tragically, when his brother died suddenly five years ago from heart failure he also saw first hand how more needed to be done to support those suffering with grief & loss.
