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.
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.
The fabulous tutor was very knowledgeable and involved all the group in discussions and exercises which made it all very enjoyable as well as informative. Great venue as well.
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
I recently attended a 2 day mental health first aider training program.
All the team were friendly & welcoming into their lovely, modernised training suite set in the gorgeous Darley Abbey Mills.
Annie is absolutely amazing! Her knowledge, skills & passion for teaching mental health awareness is out of this world.
Annie was so flexible & attentive to our needs. I have a disability & she went the extra mile to make me comfortable by organising a parking space right outside the building, providing me with an erganomic chair & more opportunity for mobility so we weren’t sat down for long periods of time. This was all done discretely by asking me what they could do to help by email & I witnessed her asking others if mobility activities would help them also. (It was a red hot day for training & I think all appreciated it). I observed her modifying the activities to meet others needs too; as & when they arose.
Annie encouraged & provided equal opportunity for all to share their own experiences. She listened to all with genuine interest & helped us to see how our experience fitted in with the mental health first aider action plan.
Fresh water, fruit & other snacks were on our table to help ourselves to, throughout the day. Plenty of breaks were provided with a lovely buffet lunch too.
I highly recommend the course & this particular training provider.
Thank you & well done to the whole team, you’re all amazing! 💖
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.
This course was offered by Loates Management Training and I’m very glad I booked onto it.
This course is a must for those that feel they are afraid to approach and offer support to a person with a mental health issue for fear of ‘getting it wrong’.
The course builds on your strength as a listener and teaches skills to support and help those around you whether at work or at home or even yourself when you are struggling with every day problems and pressures.
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.
The MHFA Two Day course is superb. Loates trainer Amanda delivered the course in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, engaging everybody and making difficult subjects very easy to discuss and learn about. The practical exercises were actually fun but with a serious point, the Hearing Voices one really brought home to me how some people suffer. The course covers depression and anxiety, suicide, psychosis and gives you a framework to use to help people. The course book is huge, well produced and contains more detailed information than you need for the course, you take it away and dip in it at your leisure. Loates training rooms allowed for small group work and large discussions with large screen and good sound.
This course opened my eyes to what people go through, and that many people are affected. Everyone was open which added to the learning atmosphere. I recommend this course to everyone, all levels and all roles. The more we talk, the stronger we all are.
