London Vibe Day 1 & 2
A heavy two days kicked off our London Vibe focussing on the global two day Mental Health First Aider course! Co delivering this time was Chris Thompson who was on Growing Talent 2 and recently completed his training as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor!
After a sumptious three course lunch at De Vere’s restaurant, Chris delivered the second session of MHFA on depression and suicide to a focussed group of Growing Talent Associates despite a large lunch!
