“I believed I was able to help people with mental health because I was such a strong capable character. Taking this course made me realise that I am far from helpful and been dealing with matters completely inappropriately, albeit my intentions were good. Adrian the instructor was excellent. His ability to explain and talk us through each section of the course was wonderful. For me personally, it was as if the course was all about me and how I was feeling. I have never before suffered from depression or anxiety. This current issue of COVID-19 together with many other challenges I have dealt with have left me in an awful place mentally. This course gave me all the information, help and guidance I needed not only to help myself but those around me who may be suffering. I can’t thank Adrian enough and for me having the course online enabled me to go through the emotions in privacy and not sitting in a room full of strangers. I believe everyone should at some point take this course and benefit from all it can teach and provide. An essential tool to have in today’s society and workplace”
“An excellent course which was brilliantly delivered. The pace was perfect and it worked really well on Zoom, with Adrian being really proficient with making it all work. I felt he handled all of the questions really sensitively. I felt I already knew quite a bit about MH before this course due to previous work roles, however, I learnt a lot of new things on this course and finished it feeling far more confident about MH and supporting people. Thank you”
