“Early intervention is key. The quicker you can get a young person help, the quicker they will recover. Due to the one-to-one relationship tutors have with their students, they are often in the best position to recognise and respond to the early signs of poor mental health. This is why it’s so important for tutors to receive mental health training.”

“Thank you Dan, for your amazing 2 day MHFA course. It was professional, informative, and helpful, especially to us working in private tuition. I honestly think more people need to be made aware of the MH issues with young people, and I hope they get up to speed by attending your course. 10/10 Recommend!”
