I completed the 2-day Mental Health First Aid course with Paula in Bristol in Jan 2019 and I have already recommended Paula to other people. Having worked in a university environment for many years as well as being in personal situations where mental health first aid training would have been useful to have known, this course exceeded my expectations. Paula has a very kind and relaxed training manner, but equally, she is able to portray and discuss the often sensitive nature of the topics and her own experiences (as well as those of the group), in a very professional manner. Paula gave us many opportunities to practice techniques learned on the course, and despite thinking I had a high level of knowledge around the topic before going on the course, I am now additionally seeing things from a very different perspective which has also been useful on a personal wellbeing level. If you are considering this course for you or your organisation, definitely speak to Paula. You will come away with new knowledge, ideas for developing your own wellbeing and that of your workplace, as well as many resources for additional reading and learning around the topic.
