A new year brings new opportunities to step up our understanding of mental health and speak out when we are concerned.

Mental health training for all

Our mental health training in agriculture is expanding.

Mental health training in action

With another 8 Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses planned, we are set to see a further 90 people trained as Mental Health First Aiders this year – course dates and booking information is here.

Alongside our core training offer, other awareness raising courses will be taking place on farms and businesses alike.

We strive to retain the unique opportunity we have to provide funded places on this training for those who are invested in the cause and can demonstrate their ability to use the skills learnt.

Unique outcomes

Past delegates have taken the tools learnt back to their workplaces, developing new processes which have led to positive changes in workplace attitudes.

They have applied their learning to their family life and empowered loved ones to get the help needed.

They have supported people with empathy and insight to reach out and ask for help; a brave step that takes strength.

Mental health is everyone’s business and should be part of our every day conversations.

Take a look at this short video by Mental Health First Aid England and hear how 5 people have used their learning from the MHFA training.

New training locations

This year we are pleased to bring the course to Cambridgeshire – our spring and summer courses are filling up fast, so if you want to be considered for a place, check out the dates and get in touch.
