“Myself and colleagues attended a Mental Health First Aid Lite course delivered by Altruist at Three Trees Community Centre, Solihull. We learnt about some of the main mental health problems, how to support others who may be experiencing issues, and also discussed ways to support our own wellbeing. The course was very thought provoking and delegates were able to discuss personal experiences and share best practice in a safe and comfortable environment.” Sophia Nasreisfahany, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.
