About MHFA999 & Its inspirational owner Andy Graham:
Andy is undoubtedly a graduate from the University of life, having served his country in the British Army and had a distinguished 30-year career as a fire-fighter in Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service.
In experiencing the dark days of mental health issues Andy has emerged through his issues and wanted to give something back, so he embarked on becoming a licenced & accredited Mental Health First Aid instructor through MHFA England.
This has enabled Andy to deliver training and his message that it is OK to talk about this subject through his company MHFA999, who offer both Mental Health First Aid & Physical First Aid training courses for industry, business and individuals alike. This certifies people to become Mental Health First Aiders supporting colleagues who would be able to spot early symptoms, know what to say to someone who is struggling, and open up options for them to get appropriate & effective support, or to ask - “How are you feeling?” OR “let’s talk?”
MHFA999 won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Adult MHFA999 courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards.
Every MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured instructor who has attended our Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.
In return they will be able to offer affiliate codes to people who work with them, allowing people to gain payment when people sign up.
