or just need someone to talk to?

The SkillZone team is dedicated to providing top-notch first aid training to those who may be struggling with mental health issues such as depression. With experienced trainers and a comprehensive curriculum, The SkillZone is committed to helping you and your team become empowered to make a difference.

We all need a little time, every now and then, even if it’s to reflect or just to let off steam.  It’s great if you can do this with a partner or a friend, sometimes even with a stranger!

Try to talk over your worries with a cuppa, somewhere you are comfortable and won’t be interrupted.  What you have to say is important and how you feel is more important.

This four hour awareness course is suitable for everyone as it provides learners with the knowledge to recognize a suspected mental health condition and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost a person towards professional help.
