West Midlands Fire Service have commissioned Altruist Enterprises to deliver Mental Health First Aid training to staff across various departments. I attended the 2-day Mental Health First Aid course and found it of great value. Having experienced some of the issues we discussed, I found it difficult at times but I'm so glad I did it. I'm already putting it to use and making a difference to someone. The course was delivered at a nice informal pace. There was enough time for questions and discussion and the trainer made herself available for private questions too. There was also plenty of humour! I would recommend this course to anyone. After all, we all know people experiencing some form of mental ill health.
The course was interactive, enjoyable and informative. It was a very good starting point to a vast subject and helpful to get managers to think along the right lines and share useful techniques and best practice. An ideal balance of presentation, activities and discussion, I would recommend this course to other businesses who would like to up-skill managers to spot the early signs of stress and have the confidence to start that important conversation with employees.
