    What a fantastic course! I couldn’t recommend it enough to people. Wether your a parent, teacher, co worker this is a brilliant course to help people understand how to help someone if they are struggling with their mental health and how to look after ourselves better so we can help others. It’s a 2 day course but was steadily split into sections and taken at a steady pace and regular breaks. Some topics were emotional and challenging but Lisa is a brilliant leader that led these with care and sensitivity. Would highly recommend this course.
