The Mental Health at Work Training was really useful, with practical skills to help both in and out of the workplace. The course was very engaging and I was made to feel comfortable and supported while covering the course material.
I found the mental health first aid training excellent, it was delivered sensitively and professionally, everyone’s points of view were considered and respected. I would thoroughly recommend this training to other voluntary sector organisations.
I recently attended the 2-day Mental Health First Aid training at Loates Management Training and am really pleased I did. Sometimes it’s hard to allow yourself two days ‘off work’ and invest in your own development, but I’m glad I did. Apart from increasing my knowledge about mental health, the training has given me the confidence to approach staff about mental health, the focus to further invest in mental health awareness and – as a great bonus – the importance of self-care was a great reminder.
P.S. The training room in Loates’ new facility in Darley Mills is fantastic too – onsite parking and a stroll in the park at break time.
Annie was lovely throughout the course. Mandy the lady that joined her on course was also great – both very knowledgeable on subject and full of empathy for offers of experiences within the training session.
Can’t wait to complete more courses through Loates – thanks again.
Considering the topic of mental health first aid Annie made the training informative, yet it was also an enjoyable experience. Annie made it inter-active and wasn’t just following a power-point presentation. I have come away with a huge amount of knowledge to take back to my workplace.
I had a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere when I attended the mental health first aid course. The lunch was wonderful and tea and coffee was always available. I would recommend Loates Management Training every time for your training needs.
This training is essential for managers and employees who need to have a clear understanding of Mental health and practical structured ways to support their team.
Mental Health First Aid does exactly that.
I really benefited from Annie’s open-ness and professional knowledge coupled with the group discussions and learning gained from other candidates in different industries was extremely valuable.
It has really helped me identify new ways of working and supporting the health of my team. This course, just like physical first aid gives clear guidance on immediate support that can be applied in a multitude of scenarios.
I would recommend this training for at least one person in every workplace.
A good start to mental health issues. I work with a lot of people with social anxiety and was hoping to gain more info on this topic but understand it may be a bit niche. I have definitely upskilled by attending this course.
I attended the Mental Health First Aid course held by Loates Management Training last week, I was impressed by the quality of training Amanda delivered, the course content was excellent and the reference material we took away was of a very high standard.
The venue was perfect the room was well ventilated and roomy and all the IT worked first time! Result!
I would also like to mention Loates’ team – they welcomed us and kept us well fed and watered throughout the course, they were professional courteous and delightful.
i would have no issue recommending this excellent HR consultancy for any training needs
