Using our two days to maximum advantage, we train you to become a first-class Mental Health First Aider. What is Mental Health First Aid you ask?

Why Do I Need It?

Did you know that the risk of suicide for men in skilled trades like plumbing is 35% higher than the national average suicide rate for men? Or for women in health care professions the suicide rate is 24% higher than the female national average?[1]
Or did you know that the top five industries affected by depression are private and public transit, real estate, social services, manufacturing and personal services? And that the same study saw a correlation between the incidence of depression and frequent or difficult interaction with the public?[2]
Mental health in the workplace affects us all, and sometimes in completely surprising ways. Becoming a Mental Health First Aider will enable you to ensure that your workplace is safe. After all, when suicide is the leading cause of death in adults under the age of 50, we could all work together to ensure the safest and most productive work environments.

Sherene Glynn- Wrekin Housing Group

“Taking part into the 2 day MHFA Course was very intense but informative. It has helped me as an individual, as a mother and as a manager. It has changed my perspective and opened my eyes to certain aspects of mental health that I would never have thought about.

Highly recommended for anyone in middle management or above. It will break down the barriers and preconceptions that you may have regarding mental illness. (26th November 2020)“

“I have just completed the 2 day mental health first aid course and it was brilliant! some amazing people and a very interesting course. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to expand their knowledge of mental health and develop the skills to support others as well. Thank you Teresa for a great course (and Jim of course).“

Michael Cartwright

“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.
Great course.“
