This course far exceeded my expectations. It raised my awareness of mental health and the importance of becoming part of a non judgemental workforce to reduce negative attitudes in the workplace and society in general. The course was operated online and incorporated different mediums to explore the topic. I found it really interesting; it gave me information and insight into a subject I only knew a little about. I hope it will improve my approach to mental health at work and also in my personal life, by giving me the skills to listen non judgementally and start important conversations around mental health within an enabling framework. Recommended.

Such an informative course. Learnt so much. Thought was obviously given on how to make this a productive online learning environment. From the personal dashboard/profile set up to the different interactive learning styles videos, face-to-face, reading, break out rooms to the self-testing to check your understanding. David's tutoring style was spot on, friendly but professional, very knowledgeable and kept us on our toes!

The course materials and presentation were fantastic. The course made me confident that I can help someone with mental health when they are experiencing issues. One of the big things I took away is that I can help alleviate mental health stigma

Thoroughly enjoyed our time completing our Mental Health First Aider course with David of Dewi Development, we were surprised at how user friendly their website was and at the amount of learning resources made available to us. We had David's support throughout and found his teaching style to be extremely engaging. We had a wide range of learners on the course but David managed to keep everyones attention throughout. It was insightful, fun, and the knowledge we've taken away will be a huge advantage to us, not only in the work place but our personal lives too. We can't wait for the opportunity to book in for further courses with Dewi Development.
