New £15m programme to train a million in mental health first aid

A new £15 million programme will see up to 1 million people trained in basic mental health “first aid” skills. The programme will improve personal resilience and help people recognise and respond effectively to signs of mental illness in others.

The Public Health England (PHE) campaign will help people assess their own mental wellbeing and learn techniques to reduce stress.
