At Great Minds At Work, we have a range of different mental health first aid courses for all requirements. Whether you need a refresher course for your team, or you’re an individual who wants to be able to better deal with mental health issues at work, we can help. All our courses are fully approved and accredited MHFA England courses. Plus, we can even provide our courses online, in-light of current restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mental health issues in the workplace can result in employees taking time off, resulting in lost money and resources. Our courses provide employees and managers with the knowledge they need to support mental health issues amongst their peers.
In the same way a medical first aider has the knowledge to provide first response support in light of an accident, mental health first aiders play the role of providing advice and support to colleagues suffering from mental health illnesses.
When an employee experiences a mental health issue, they can contact the mental health first aider for support, knowing they have all the necessary training and understanding to help them approach the issues without the use of stigma.
We offer a wide variety of first aid courses from awareness through to refresher depending on the level of the attendee. They range from half a day through to 2 full days and costs start from just £125 per person.

Our company delivers recruitment services to the construction industry and works mainly with freelance contractors.
We carried out a wellbeing survey of our contractors in October 2018 and feedback indicated that they needed more support on site. In response to the feedback we engaged Al from Great Minds At Work to train up 8 of our front line staff as Mental Health First Aiders.
We undertook the two day MHFA course and the training we received from Al was superb. Al is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and can deliver training on difficult subjects in a sensitive and understanding manner. He was able to fully engage our staff and provide them with the confidence to talk about mental health when the need may arise.
Thank you Al for opening our minds!
The course was excellent…. a good mix of presentation, engagement and group activities. Stimulating discussions around the issues. I took some simple take-aways like the ALGEE model to implement. It was very worthwhile, thought-provoking and practical.
I found this course very insightful with lots to implement in my working life.
This course was a real eye-opener into mental health
