How we are currently helping

We utilise UK Government funding to help educate and support all who are passionate towards improving mental health and wellbeing.

  • Support those around you

    Support friends, family and colleagues with mental health problems, and explore different types of mental ill health.

  • Boost your own self-confidence and mental health

    Learning will not only help you understand the condition but will give you a sense of pride and achievement once completed.

  • Add an accredited mental health certificate to your CV

    Qualifications recognise your ability to gain, and apply a range of knowledge, skills and understanding.

This is a mental health emergency.

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.

In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.

Saw an Ad on Facebook in which I thought was too good to be true. When I see “Free” I always think there is a catch. There is not! Enrolment process is so easy and I spoke to a lovely lady named Tasha who was extremely helpful and answered any questions I had regarding the enrolment process!

I just started the course for Equality and Diversity and it is very interested and all the content is very clear and very dynamic with the exercises. I'm very happy with it and probably I will do another one after this. Claire, the Tutor, was very friendly and supportive.

Spoke to Jo this afternoon regarding the mental health problems course. Jo was thorough, professional and excellent to talk to. She also followed up the call and responded to email in a very timely fashion. She is a real asset to this organisation.

During lockdown I used my time to upskill and expand my knowledge. I recommend Mental Health First Aid. Attaining a nationally recognised certificate will help me reach my career goals. It has also given me skills and understanding to offer support to people close to me.
