MHFA Course

This training was enlightening and powerful. The PAL Model is robust enough to be used as a means of averting a crisis such as suicide. The opportunity to share intimate experiences was a way of building empathy and resolve of your own internal struggles. Essential in building awareness and structurally sound.


Wellbeing is rapidly becoming one of the most important areas in education and following the creation of a wellbeing team across out academy it was vital the we accessed suitable CPD.
MHFA course was attended on 31st May and I found the course had just the right pace to develop my understanding.  The facilitator was knowledgeable, made me feel at ease throughout, gave first hand testimony of poor mental health and detailed realistic supportive strategies.
Upon completion I felt more equipped with underpinned knowledge to support friends, family and colleagues successfully and would recommend this course for anyone.


ASIST Course

What a fantastic course, really could not fault anything about the 3 days from start to finish. The emotional & distressing subject of suicide was dealt with great respect & empathy. 

The advice & information given was invaluable, also the role play & group activities gave the training a sense of realism. The course was relaxed & you were made to feel safe & comfortable. 

The 2 lecturers were honest, informative & open in disclosing their own experiences, this course has given me the tools & confidence to deal with the subject in a professional & confident manner. 


I just want to say a big thank you for this course was wondering if any more like this where coming up again soon or even next year 


I attended the Asist Course on the 26th and 27th September at Redcar Leisure Centre. 

The room was well set out from the start with refreshments and snack items that put all the candidates at ease. From the outset the set up from the facilitators was top Class.

The course ran very well allowing for questions and answers as the topic came up making it relevant to the time. Even though the course was not an easy course in relation to the content discussed it was set out from the outset that if anyone needed to leave the room to take a time out it was available as well as the support.

Over the two days, all candidates interacted well and supported each other as well as the support from the facilitators.

This has been the “top up” I needed to complement the 2-day Mental Health First Aider training and has given me the tools and techniques to make a difference if the occasion comes up.


After recently completing the ASIST training, I was informed that the Mental Health First Aid was a great opportunity to get to compliment the ASIST training and of course my working role.
I found the ASIST training to be one of the most informative, interesting and enjoyable pieces of training I have completed so far. I very much looking forward to the Mental Health First Aid.


I would highly recommend the Safe Talk training it was really good and easy to understand. It will be a huge help in my mental wellbeing practitioner role. I have already recommended it to some of my work colleges’ .


The safeTalk suicide prevention was very well delivered and the facilitator’s Andrew and Izzy were great, handouts are very useful for the jobs we do, would definitely recommend this safeTALK workshop to other services, Lewis and Clare from admin have been great getting me onto this workshop.


I would like to say I found the course very beneficial to my work on a daily basis .I especially liked how the trainers informed us of how to look at the question of “Are you thinking about suicide “ as an invitation to open up a conversation around suicide with someone who is having suicidal thoughts and intentions.

I liked how the role play was made easier by pretending to be a “celebrity” rather than having to act as yourself.

The Trainers passion for teaching people  Safe Talk Skills was evident throughout the afternoon.


Completing the SafeTALK course has made me feel better educated and therefore more comfortable and prepared to  approach suicide. It has made me more confident in recognising invitations from others to talk’


I attended a two-day mental health first Aid training course in Redcar on the 31st January and 1st February 2023 the course was facilitator Simon Richardson he was amazing really enjoyed the two days taken a lot away from the training.


 Just to feed back that I really enjoyed the course. Simon, the Trainer, was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the subject and we were all really well supported whilst discussing what can be a difficult topic. I got loads out of the course and it will be a great help to supporting people with their mental health and wellbeing in the organisation. Thank you!

I attended the Supervising first aid for mental health and can wholeheartedly say it was the most interesting course I have been on through work. The Trainer was extremely diligent and shows passion for the subject and in turn makes you want to learn. I came away feeling inspired and with valuable new tools and techniques that I can implement in my role at work and also in my personal life.
