I've been a Mental Health First Aider at Imperial since 2017. MHFAiders are trained to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and can potentially help stop a crisis from happening. They can do this by recognising warning signs, and they have the skills and confidence to approach and support someone experiencing mental ill-health. Find out more

Previous experience

I completed an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences (Zoology BSc Hons) at the University of Bristol in 2008, and have since also worked for Wildscreen, Icon Films, and Wellcome Trust.
