What our clients say about this course

I feel so comfortable now with providing mental health first aid to anyone in need.

Great course. Everyone should do it!

Nick knew his subject, dealt well with Zoom and facilitated the group really skilfully. He was considerate supportive and upbeat.

This course has brought about a personal passion and has highlighted the importance for mental health first aid. I believe it should be a standard requirement for all workplaces.

I now feel confident to have conversations rather than just observe people's behaviour.

It is important to do to not only improve your understanding of mental health, but to give you the confidence to act in a mental health emergency

Nick created a safe and engaging learning environment from the beginning, he was clear, articulate, relatable with a wealth of knowledge and a joy to listen to.
