According to the BBC, Mental health first aid training teaches participants how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and to respond appropriately. Since its inception the training has spread around the world, reducing stigmatisation and helping people to treat mental health like any other illness. Trainer Chris Morgan says “One particularly rewarding thing is seeing people realize that everybody has mental health in the same way that everybody has physical health and we should look after our own mental health”.
