    We help people to build on their own strengths and find ways to cope with challenging life events

    Our National MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) training inspires and enables people - many of whom have experienced difficult life circumstances, anxiety, stress or low/changeable mood swings, – to take responsibility for their future direction.

    Emotional and mental health issues can often be brought on by the strains of everyday life situations. This could be caring for a child/children with disabilities, suffering the loss of a relative or close friend, coping with living with a person with a gambling addiction or substance abuse whilst juggling the responsibilities of a hectic and sometimes chaotic lifestyle.

    We help people to build on their own strengths and find ways to cope with challenging life events. We offer training, information and resources to help ease the pressures, and provide support and opportunities for people so they can support each other.

    Our emotional, mental health and well-being training is for anyone who feels they may benefit from help to improve their emotional well-being, anxiety, stress or low mood, or use the skills learned to support others.

    “The resilience course helped me to understand why I feel like I do and that I’m not alone. It motivated me to have more respect for myself, give myself some goals and ways to move forward instead of feeling my life was over or I had failed.” Parent

    “This is the single most useful and informative course I have ever been on. Thank you!” Employer

    “It has helped me in managing my anxieties and knowing how to use resources in the future if needed” Parent
