Training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches participants how to assist people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

I am an Accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructor. You can find my upcoming course dates and locations here to directly arrange a course for yourself, an organisation or group.
