“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.”
