Mental Health campaigner Ben West is joining Morning Live BBC One on Friday 9th February 2024 to discuss Children’s Mental Health Week

Ben is one of the most engaged mental health campaigners in the UK, committed to making real change around mental health in our society. In 2018, at just 17 years old, Ben’s world collapsed around him when he tragically and unexpectedly lost his brother to suicide.

The loss of Sam, aged only 15 when he died, propelled Ben to take positive action from this tragedy and concentrate his pain into a drive to campaigning around mental health awareness, suicide prevention and fundamentally changing how we approach mental health, especially in schools and the education system.
