What could have been PowerPoint overload and an emotionally difficult couple of days was handled brilliantly with excellent delivery by Annie, who used a combination of the course content and her own experiences to create an engaging and inclusive environment for everyone. I would 100% recommend this course delivered by Annie to every business!

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! 💖

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Amanda Bryant
HR Manager

Loates Management Training have fantastic offices in Darley Abbey Mills, which were perfect for holding the training course.

The course instructor Amanda, was very knowledgeable and delivered the 2 day course well. The course itself was informative, it helped increase awareness of mental health, the importance of having positive mental health, and the difficulties people can experience when they have poor mental health.

Having completed the course, I’m now better equipped to spot poor mental health and know how best to approach and support this in the workplace.

Dean Kellogg
Business Manager

From the initial query regarding this course to its delivery, I couldn’t fault anything. The pre-course information and joining instructions were given in good time and everyone from Loates was friendly, professional and made you warm to them immediately. The course itself was fantastic, the manual and workbook will be used for years to come as it has so much information in it and will become my reference guide for a lot of things. The trainer was brilliant and put everyone at ease for what could potentially be a harrowing course and the attendee interaction was excellent too. Would highly recommend this course and Loates Management Training in future
