The BHF now have over 100 Mental Health Ambassadors across the organisation. Katherine Stybelski, one of our Fundraising Managers tells us why she chose to take up the opportunity to become a MHA & what it means to her. I chose to sign up as a MHA first aider as it’s been something I have been interested in for a while and when the pandemic hit it felt like the right time. People have been under exceptional amounts of stress and pressure in these strange times, and I wanted to do my bit to support who I can. To me being a Mental Health First Aider means I can offer my time and non-judgemental listening ear to a colleague in need. I want to be part of building a positive culture in the workplace about understanding mental health and how we can recognise and guide people towards the appropriate support for them. The training was great, thorough, and enabled us to look at different types of scenarios and the parts we can play to help. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Average Interview

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (London, England, England)


    I was a volunteer and the manager told me that it was a vacancy and suggested me to apply. I did it and I had the interview after a week or two weeks.
    The interview was one to one with the manager and the questions were typical.

    How do you prioritize the task for the day?
