  • It has made me definitely more aware of signs and symptoms of mental illness and how to deal with them. I will use this in daily life and work

  • I felt that the delivery and content were very good and couldn't be improved upon.

  • I want to get my team trained up as this is very useful for police officers

    MHFA Course member
  • It was knowing that caring, listening and wanting to help was the most important thing for helping someone, rather than thinking I always had to have the right answers. The course has opened my eyes to my potential to support others.

  • The 2 day course completely changed my thoughts and the way I speak with young people I come into contact with. I see beyond what we " think" we see.
