Why train with us?

  • We recognised the importance of selfcare as some of the topics covered within the training some people may find upsetting. We stress the importance of selfcare in all our training, as well as the importance in giving it ongoing attention
  • It’s not just about the training, we work with you to make it relevant to your organisation, drive real culture change through supporting mental wellbeing and reducing stigma and discrimination associated with mental ill health.
  • We understand there has to be a business case, as well as believing it is the ‘right’ thing to do for your employees
  • You can become part of our networking events to support the implementation of MHFA and offer ongoing support, reflection and learning for MHFAiders.
