An excellent course where difficult content was delivered thoughtfully and powerfully. All adults working with young people should attend this course.
This course has helped me to feel empowered to help and support young people at work and at home with their mental health. I have always strived to be available for calm, non judgmental listening but I need to get even better. Timing can be crucial and a small window of opportunity to help can so easily be missed. Rachel and Ben were both inspirational and reassuring and with their knowledge and advice I feel stronger in my role as a Youth Mental Health First Aider. Thank you.
Would definitely recommend this course
A really indepth insight to all aspects of Mental health. The instructors were really knowledgable, providing lots of additional advice and guidance. Really enjoyed the content of the course even though a difficult subject/content.
Although the course content could have been very heavy with extremely sensitive topics covered, the facilitators ensured it was delivered in an engaging and interactive manner. They both had excellent subject knowledge and were very acutely aware of the need for humour and dialogue at regular intervals. By the end of the two days, we both felt empowered to support our most vulnerable pupils, either by ourselves in school, or by knowing which relevant agency to contact. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in supporting the well-being of the young people they work with.
Brilliant course, instructors are understanding and informative. Really excited to use this experience to help people and educate others.
Extremely Insightful course with practical strategies that I feel confident in applying. The instructirs were both knowledgable and engaging, helpful and open to questions.
