I have worked with Mental Health First Aid England. They provide quality training courses for workplaces to support employees and they provide a library of resources. https://mhfaengland.org/I completed my Youth Mental Health First Aid course with them which I recommend. I can now be a first responder supporting young people in a mental health crisis.

- Hi everyone, it is an extremely testing time at the moment. The current situation in England, where we are under a second national lockdown has left many people feeling isolated, frustrated and anxious. It is really important to embrace our emotions and check-in our mental health. Peace Over Panic Blog is a platform I created to support anyone who is having a hard time with overwhelming stress, anxiety and panic attacks. I am a big believer in natural remedies and share all the things which I have personally found to help me feel more empowered in taking care of my mental health. You can find out more about our free programmes, resources and articles here: https://peaceoverpanicblog.com/ - If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch! Nav x
