Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA)
British Safety Council
Stress, Anxiety, & Depression
We all have mental health in the same way that we all have physical health. Mental health issues are common but many of us know little about our mental health compared to our physical health.
Stigma and lack of awareness can stop people from talking about their mental health, delaying them from getting the support needed for recovery.
The good news is that there are simple things we can all do to identify emerging mental health issues in ourselves and others and provide support and information.

Reactions to our Courses
From a District Council, Adult MHFA course:
This course was very informative and helpful. David was an excellent instructor, he engaged everyone on the course and helped everyone to form a bond where we felt comfortable to trust and share. The tone, speed and pitch were just right and he ensured that everyone felt ok at every stage and gave us the option not to join in if anyone was feeling vulnerable.
He answered all our questions and gave everyone the opportunity to ask questions to further understanding. I would recommend David and the course as the information was very useful for work, relationships and everyday life and it would benefit as many people as possible to have this information.
From School staff, Youth MHFA course:
An intense but rewarding course. Great 'team' atmosphere throughout. Delegates and Tutor were respectful of each other, and supportive and understanding about the sensitive nature of some of the discussions and material. Great course materials and links.
The course has affirmed that I have a good understanding and awareness of mental health from previous training and experience, and has expanded this knowledge and ensured I am up-to-date with current thinking. It has provided useful suggestions for resources and approaches to supporting young people. I feel more confident to tackle concerns raised by students, and to support staff in any processes relating to this.A brilliant experience. Thank you!

Over the years we have delivered Mental Health Courses to many UK organisations, including Hampshire Council and Pension Protection Fund.
David was fantastic!! He made sure he was looking at the camera (and not the screen) pretty much the whole time, which isn't easy! David was funny and supportive, but also kept the group moving and under control so that we didn't go off down rabbit holes! He encouraged participants to share stories and made it a safe environment to do so. I honestly thought the course content and delivery couldn't have been better, it far exceeded my expectations - so thank you!
Criminal Justice Organisation, Adult MHFA course
Brilliant course, works really well online. Just the right level of content and with signposts to additional learning. I would recommend to anyone! Thank you, David.
School Staff, Youth Course
Very insightful and informative. Amazing resources and incredible online lessons allowing everyone to be visible on the camera and join the conversations. Well organised group work. David has been inclusive, non-judgemental and knowledgeable. I wish I could do the course again once it is back face to face. Thank you!
