Our course won't make you a qualified mental health professional.

But you don't need to be a professional to be there for those around you.

What do people say about our course? 

“It's empowering to have tools to cope with your own insecurity when supporting others.”

“It was really helpful to see conversations in action.”

“It can be a foreign territory where it needn't be ... I feel a lot more confident to do this now.”

“Enlightening and empowering.”

We first developed this course in 2023, with support from Co-op. Find out more about our partnership with Co-op.
