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! 💖
