Mental health first aid training course
Our two-day MHFA course aims to teach the practical skills needed for delegates to help provide emotional support in the workplace.
Mental health at work is an important topic. More and more employees are suffering from stress and anxiety, and sometimes being at work can tip the balance.

How many first aiders would know how to treat a person who is in need of emotional support?
This course will provide delegates with the necessary skills to help people in need of emotional support. Often, it is just about listening, but listening in a meaningful and non-judgemental way.
