I attended a Mental Health First Aid course with Annie. We were fortunate enough to only have six of us on the course, which really helped with the course dynamics. Annie was a brilliant trainer, very personable and bubby and very skilled at facilitating the group discussions to ensure everybody participated. The course was well organised and all the communications received pre and post the training have been informative and sent in a timely manner. This was my first experience with Loates Training and it was a really positive one – I will definitely be using them again!

Vicky Luke
Account Director

Great two days training, sessions interactive and led by knowledgeable trainers. Interaction with the attendees and support offered very good and would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to offer Mental Health First Aid support in their organisation

Zena Barratt
Lead Nurse

A highly informative and interesting course, delivered sensitively yet entertainingly by Amanda Jackson. I now feel way more equipped to deal with mental health issues both in my personal and professional life. A hugely beneficial two days – thank you.

Helen Brown
Business Manager

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.

Viv Sheppard
HR & Wellbeing Manager

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.

Paula Thompson
QUENSH Manager

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.

Stephen Carroll
Health and Safety Manager

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.

Helen West
Project Manager

I attended the 2 day Mental Health First Aider training ran by Annie. There was excellent communication and information leading up to the course. The course itself was very interesting and informative with lots of interactive opportunities over the 2 days. Training room was very comfortable and lunch and refreshments provided on each day was fantastic. For anyone thinking about completing this course I would definitely recommend the course and Annie the trainer who was fantastic. We will definitely be booking on another delegate.

Emma Blackmore
Registered Manager

Overall very impressed. The course was well taught by Annie who was knowledgeable, funny, open and kind. I would recommend to anyone for the simple benefit to further their understanding of the invisible struggles of yourself and others around you. I feel more confident to be able to spot people who are struggling and more able to approach them to be of assistance where possible. The atmosphere made it feel like a safe space and meeting people and hearing others’ views and stories was also beneficial to the learning experience.

Thank you!
