External Course Providers

Please see below for two external course providers who specialise in different aspects of mental health training. 

Six Connections

In 2021 Six Connections was born. Initially with beers and coffees, designed to help start the conversation around mental health. In normal places like the pub or at the footy. Products linked to conversation, to get the conversation going, with linked web support and training to back up the chat.

Helping mates to talk and support each other. Making those tough conversations easier. One healthy conversation being the catalyst for another, for six others, six more and then six more. For mates. Powered By Mates.

Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA)

Through training and campaigning, MHFA equip people with the skills they need to support their own and others’ wellbeing.

They offer a range of evidence-based face to face and digital learning, from awareness raising to skill development. Their courses empower people to notice signs of mental ill health, and encourage them to break down barriers, listen in a non-judgemental way, and signpost to support for recovery.
