WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT MHFA

Testimonials

Our new team member attended your 2 day MHFA training. Not only did she thoroughly enjoy the delivery and informative sessions, this additional knowledge has given her so much more confidence and insight into her role. We will definitely be booking the same training, with you, for any new teams members in the future!

Tina

I have learnt so much and feel better equipped in understanding mental health, and how it manifests in different stages. They answered all of the questions, and made me feel safe to share any vulnerabilities, and experiences. A great course and have recommended it to everyone I know so far!

Mel

Really great course covering issues that I believe are often overlooked. (Typically you would complete a physical first aid course, however, this seems more "modern" as it feels more relevant to the issues of today). It can be quite overwhelming when you can identify an issue that needs to be approached, but you don't quite know how to approach it/resolve/who to refer to. I am leaving this course with an increased knowledge of mental health and improved confidence in how I would react when trying to resolve an issue.
