Really insightful course, providing detailed knowledge about mental health. Having completed, I feel much more confident about dealing with mental health issues within the workplace.
I found the course very engaging and useful, not only for the work environment but for personal experiences. The course was professionally delivered with plenty of real anecdotes which we could relate to.
I have done the half day course and the 2 day. both were excellent. I would recommend either to anyone. Mental health is often overlooked and within the sessions you learn how it affects not just yourself, but everybody else.
Teresa as an instructor is warm, friendly and creates a safe space for all to share experiences.
I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to attend a 2 day course through my work – Access to Business. I found the experience of the trainer – Teresa – to be excellent and well explained. The course has helped me, not just with clients but also with my own issues. I would thoroughly recommend that you attend this course for added piece of mind and confidence to help others.
Very enjoyable course and very well presented by our trainer.
I was given the opportunity to attend the Mental Health First Aid course at Access To Business and found it to be a very rewarding experience. It has given me the confidence to talk to people who may have mental health issues. I am now considered to be someone who can advise only regarding first response. The course was very informative and had just the right amount of information to enable me to have a working knowledge of mental health issues. The trainer was especially good and went at the right pace.
