This has been on of the best experiences I have had in terms of mental health education and awareness. With a knowledgeable instructor, great attitude and respectful environment, I was able to learn from others, share my experiences and equip myself with the tools to help other people in the arduous journey to mental wellbeing.

Loved the Mental Health First Aid course, gave me such a clearer insight into the world of what is Mental Health. Such an amazing experience to be part of an inspiring course and walked away armed with resources and tools to support other people - thanks Humanex and Ann Marie & Dan who took our course. Life changing.

This course was absolutely fantastic! There are some really useful techniques that would support a potential mental health first aider to help someone in crisis, or better yet, to help prevent someone from reaching crisis. I was surprised that this course has existed for so long and yet so few people are aware of it. I'll be doing my utmost to let everyone know about it.

Deakin Business School has engaged HumanEx to implement the New Zealand roll-out of our Counting on U mental health training program since Jan 2022. From the planning process back in late 2021 up until now, myself and the whole CoU team have been impressed by the level of professionalism and hard work the HumanEx team have put in to ensure a smooth roll-out and great learning experience for our participants. It’s been great working with people who are not only great facilitators and trainers, but also great stakeholder managers who also genuinely care about us as their client and who go the extra mile to ensure they’re able to meet/fulfill all aspects of their work with us.

HumanEx provided an amazing, informative and inspiring 2 day course on Mental Health First Aid. The passion of the presenters and the group was mind blowing and provided a unique environment to learn and grow both individually and as a group. I highly recommend HumanEx as a provider of this course - their approach is targeted, positive, constructive and adaptive which is perfect if you're doing the course for personal or business reasons - HumanEx provide a complete and well rounded course.

I had been searching for a provider for a while. Humanex were great. We took our time getting through the content and I learnt some valuable skills to improve my ability to support others - pace, location, and listening were key takeaways for me.

The training exceeded all my expectations. The Mental Health First Aid course was very informative and well presented. I now have the insights, training and most importantly the confidence to have conversations with people to make a positive difference. I wish I had done the course years ago. I recommend training with HumanEx!
