Brilliant skills improvement for our managers in one afternoon. A very efficient investment

“We wanted our less experienced people managers to feel able to open up conversations about mental health with team members. This course was really helpful in laying down the foundations to give our managers both the skills and the confidence to start these potentially difficult conversations.

The trainer was excellent and for a course that was delivered all online, it was still as interactive as if you were there in person. They kept us engaged with all of us drawing on a shared whiteboard and group work in breakout rooms to role play potential scenarios. We were impressed with how slick the online experience was and appreciated how attentive MHFA England were before the course to understand our needs.”
