I am a retired Mental Health Nurse and a Consultant for St Johns Ambulance. I decided to work as a Mental Health Nurse, when people close to me experienced mental health issues. I wanted to understand these issues and furthermore to learn what I could do to help.

After several years of working as a Registered Mental Health Nurse both on wards and in the community, I realised that friends, family and colleagues of people presenting with mental illness had a role to play in the healing process.

Thus, in 2014 I made the decision to train as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor. In the last 6 years I have delivered Mental Health First Aid courses to large corporate companies, and also presented at various conferences and conventions throughout the UK.
