Welcome to UbiQ Group’s Training Division Specialising in Mental Health First Aid Training in association with MHFA England.
Victoria Holland – MHFA Workplace Lead and Trainer
I became increasingly interested in mental health after realising how common mental ill health is and the amount of people that are impacted. I initially undertook a ‘Mental Health Awareness’ and ‘Suicide Prevention’ course as part of being involved in a charity. I have worked as a qualified teacher for fourteen years and after being involved in one of the most stressful professions (National Foundation for Education Research) I was able to see first-hand the need for prioritising and investing in mental health in the work place.
“I feel so strongly that by having Mental Health First Aiders can improve the workplace. We are on a mission to train one in ten of the population in England in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) skills – because we all have mental health.”
