Testimonial

The MHFA Course was an incredibly valuable, interactive 2 days that gave our HR professionals an in-depth and relevant look in to mental health. Not only were the course materials and content spot on, but the two trainers were engaging, honest and had many associated case studies and anecdotes that helped increase understanding and discussion. It is (at times) a heavy and distressing topic, but the sessions gave us all a better understanding and more importantly, a considerate mindset and tools to help manage possible situations.
