A Mental Health First Aider’s Story

“How to summarise the last couple of days? I have been on a journey of huge proportions. Gaining insight to the deepest parts of some ‘regular’ and ‘ordinary’ people; expanding my knowledge and avid interest in the subject of mental health; expressing myself in an incredibly candid and cathartic manner… I wholeheartedly underestimated the impact the Mental Health First Aid course could have on me. My faith in humanity, and the generosity in spirit of strangers, has taken a leap of restoration. I could not be more moved or grateful. And I implore anyone and everyone to take advantage of this life changing journey to enlightenment, courtesy of SkillBase First Aid.”
