Jackie and Brigid from the Yoga Bank, Widnes contacted me about delivering a MHFA Standard workshop at their premises. They want their instructors to be identified as Mental Health First Aiders. The workshop was delivered on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October 2016 in the yoga studio and instructors plus eight external candidates attended. Their knowledge and experience around mental health and commitment/dedication in raising awareness and reducing stigma and discrimination around mental ill-health is commendable. A brilliant two-days spent with lovely people. Hopefully we will be back next year to deliver another workshop.
“I thought this was a very thorough and accessible course. Debbie is clearly very knowledgeable. I would recommend this to other people, whatever their role”
“Really enjoyed the course. It has opened my eyes. I have mental health issues and thought I knew a lot, this course has taught me so much regarding techniques and understanding”
