“I had the pleasure of attending one of Altruist’s Mental Health First Aid courses. I really enjoyed the real life stories and insight into the issues. I learnt how to spot the early signs of stress and mental health problems within colleagues and how then to support them and signpost to the relevant services.
I think all companies should be open about mental health issues and be aware of them. This is an important course that would benefit companies, enabling them to support employees effectively. An excellent course!” Sean Gilgallon, Head of Health and Safety, CVS Group
Following the course, participants will become approved Mental Health First Aiders and will all receive a certificate along with a manual for further reference.
