hearing voices 3 sally b“As a student I found it to be everything I needed to know about Mental Health First Aid. It was particularly relevant for my studies as so many people in the criminal justice system have mental health issues. I think every student regardless of what they are studying should  have to do this course. (Lucy, Worcester University)


“After recently having dealt with a service user who had a psychotic episode, the course re-assured me that I had dealt with it appropriately and hadn’t caused any further damage”. (Roxy, YSS Keyworker)

“I found the video clips very useful in seeing how it applies in “real” life” (Lois, Keyworker)


group work 2 with debb g” As a delegate from an external organisation, I found the training to be very useful and although I will be applying my learning to a different customer group to those that YSS deal with, I will be recommending that my whole organisation undertakes the training” (Gareth, Senior  Environmental officer at Cheltenham borough council)
