CoEJ held its first Adult Mental Health First Aid course last weekend, which was facilitated by Brother Ammar Farishta of Fitrus Training and CoEJ Councillor Mariam Hassam of Revive VSG. The workshop was completely overbooked and alhamdulillah received highly positive feedback. Click on the video above to see what our brilliant participants had to say.
Some of the feedback included:
"It’s been a really good course and enjoyed all the activities that enable us to understand the different areas."
"I thought I knew and could support people who has had experienced ill mental health, but I realise now my mistakes and how I could have supported better."
"Both course trainers are absolutely brilliant. They delivered the course to the highest level and professionalism. I wish the course was longer.They made it easier to understand and involved everyone. An excellent interactive session, I cannot speak highly of the trainers - an asset to us all."
Over the course of the coming weeks, CoEJ aims to share more of what the participants learned through the course and provide awareness on topics of mental health.
Congratulations to all the participants on successfully becoming Mental Health First Aiders. Thank you for taking this brave step to go above and beyond to support your community, those around you, and most importantly, yourselves!
