Ben West takes part in Jameela Jamil’s Snapchat series ‘I Want to get better with..’
Ben West is one of the most engaged mental health campaigners in the UK, committed to making real change around mental health in our society.
Ben’s award winning work started when he noticed that teachers were not being properly prepared to deal with mental health issues in the classroom. He started a petition to make mental health first aid a compulsory part of teacher training in a bid to allow teachers the ability and courage to approach students and intervene early to help. The petition was signed by over 300,000 people and Ben has since worked with the government and Prime Minister Boris Johnson to accelerate its development.
