Anonymous feedback from an MHFA Aware course
May 2023

"I am a HR professional so I went into the training with more knowledge than a usual Manager, however this was one of the most informative courses I have attended in recent years, Simon was very knowledgeable, informative, challenging in a positive way where needed, shared his own personal experiences to the appropriate level to demonstrate the theories and his viewpoints and shared enough technical points not to be too overwhelming. A perfect balance for Managers. Thank you for your support with this topic."
