I highly recommend the program. It was a great weekend in a relaxed, supportive environment (considering the topics covered).  The stand-out aspect of the program was learning deeper about depression and anxiety.  The trainer was an excellent presenter, he was very knowledgeable about the subject.

I have spent my weekend completing a course in Mental Health First Aid and I would recommend it to everyone, whilst I’m no expert, I’ve learned a lot about human behavior and recognition in my life (and will continue to learn more) but I got so much out of this weekend.

Great Experience – I highly recommend the program.  Gives great insight to Mental Illness and how to manage it in certain situations.  

The stand-out aspect of the program was the information and detail.  The facilitator showed respect with all questions we asked and explained in detail if we were stuck or needed more clarification.  The pictures and graphs used were perfect and content was amazing.

I highly recommend the program, its a very worthwhile course.  The stand-out aspect of the program was outlining the importance of communication and asking direct honest questions particularly about the mental state of the person.  The trainer was very knowledgeable and experienced, but also someone who is passionate about helping people.  This is a very worthwhile course which gives a greater understanding of mental health issues and my ability to provide assistance.
