DMWS Chief Operating Officer, Paul Gaffney and DMWS Training Manager, Mark Perryman met with Poppy Jaman, CEO of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England and Caroline Hounsell, Director of Partnerships, Product Development and Training, MHFA England this week to talk about our past and future collaboration.

Our Training Branch has grown significantly over recent years. In the last 12 month alone we delivered a total of 42 MHFA courses, which means that DMWS Training is now one of the largest independent providers of MHFA Courses.

It also gave Poppy Jaman a chance to personally congratulate Mark on winning the MHFA Award as ‘Most Supportive MHFA Friend’ earlier this month, since Mark was unable to attend the ceremony.

Paul said: “All in all an excellent meeting which identified opportunities to work even closer to together to reduce the stigma around mental health issues through understanding.”

Mental health education empowers people to care for themselves and others.
