Open Courses

Training is the foundation to a healthy workplace.

Educating people about mental health supports open conversations, breaks down stigma and encourages resilience. It can also ensure people are aware of how to access help- allowing for a quicker recovery with a more positive outcome.

We believe the most effective way to create a healthy working environment is to educate people about mental health and offer skills to support anyone experiencing mental ill health at work. Every workplace is different, but we offer a framework that not only gives people the skills in the classroom, but also provides employers and employees a robust support network when they go back to work. In our experience this has the greatest sustainable impact.

“Mental Health First Aid is not a panacea”

We are a value driven company providing Mental Health First Aid (as accredited by Mental Health England), Resilience and Mental Health Awareness training.

At AV|WELLBEING we are very passionate about providing individuals and businesses knowledge and skills to support people with mental ill health. We have an objective of creating healthier, more compassionate and more productive workplaces. Our aim is to not only provide excellent training, but also to provide an inclusive membership via AV|WELL.HUB, post training. Mental Health First Aid is not a panacea and we do not treat it as such. What we do know is that having access to peer support, additional training and regular contact with your MHFA instructor offers a greater chance of integrating Mental Health First Aiders into workplaces. Vitally it also offers the MHFAiders more tools to take care of themselves. 

Alongside our membership program, we also offer support developing policies and procedures to encompass Mental Health First Aid and wellbeing in the workplace.

I had the pleasure of having Amy as my mentor during university. She went above and beyond to help me develop my CV, job applications and interviews. She is lovely, passionate about her work and more than helpful! She took the time to answer questions and give me insight to career routes and experiences that she has completed. I was able to learn and develop my skills under her supervision. I am very grateful for her time given to help me in my next steps to my career in mental health/psychology.

From start to finish I have bene overwhelmed by the competence and professionalism of Amy, my instructor. I was fortunate enough to have 1:2:1 support as other potential attendees had to withdraw, so likely enjoyed even greater benefit from being able to ask questions of personal relevance. Amy's insights, approach, experiences, quailfications make her success as a MHFA trainee unquestionable. Her style, manner and attitude all inspire confidence as well as a sense of calm in how to support those in need. Thank you Amy - and to MHFA England.

Great course, lots of information for all elements including the background of the common types of illness, identifying symptoms, tools to support understanding and managing situations/ conversations, details of professional help and further reading. The sessions were really relaxed and I felt confident to be able to ask any questions I had. As there were only two of us on the course and Amy was really friendly and engaging, this made it easy to be open about personal situations and talk these through as examples.

Amy was a great course leader, she had extensive knowledge of the content of the mental health first aid course and was able to answer all the questions we had as a group. Amy was able to give her own personal experiences of the content which I found very helpful as it gave examples of ways we can put the content of the course into day to day practice. The course was run very well online, I think that the use of both the manual and work book together allowed me to learn a lot of the content whilst also enforcing ways that we could use these in real life scenarios. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wanted to learn about how to help people with mental ill health as I now feel equipped to help the people around me, making sure they get the help that they may need.

I was extremely grateful to have been given the chance to go on the Mental Health First Aid Course and it was a great insight into the topic. Amy delivered the course with vast knowledge and enthusiasm; she was also very supportive and appreciative of people willing to share their own personal experiences. I would highly recommend both the course and Amy to anyone considering it.

Thank you for a fantastic couple of days training. The session was ran brilliantly with a wide range of activities to make what could be very difficult material, interesting and engage. Our trainer, Amy, was amazing and we could not of asked for more from her. The importance of Mental Health First Aid is becoming more and more prominent in the UK and the 2 day course ran by AV Wellbeing is the perfect supplement to help you and those around you.

Amy at AV Wellbeing was so knowledgeable and offered a lot of additional resources to help us practically apply the training. Amy is friendly, approachable, and made the whole group feel comfortable sharing our ideas and thoughts. I would highly recommend AV Wellbeing for MFHA training, as her sessions are very informative and engaging.
