Frequently asked questions
How much do your courses cost?
Course pricing is recommended by the course certifying body. We are very happy to work with organisations to make the most of their training budget.
Can staff furloughed staff take part in training?
Training is allowed, as long it is relevant to an employee’s role, has been agreed between the employer and the employee, and it does not provide services or revenue to the business.* Mental Health First Aid training is a great way to prepare your staff to return to the workplace and support them while they are away from work.
Is your course the nationally accredited MHFA training course?
Will the course train me to support others experiencing mental ill health?
The two-day mental health first aid course will help participants to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and the basic knowledge of what to do next. The course does not qualify participants to be counsellors or therapists, but it does give the tools to start difficult conversations about mental health, offer supportive conversations and signpost people to professional support.
Do you do courses of individuals, or just organisations
Creative Freedom is currently focusing on supporting organisations who want to train their staff. If you are an individual and you would like to join a course with others, our sister company, Mind//Shift offers opportunties to join a group.
Can people do your courses online?
Yes. All courses are offered online, with a live instructor. No special software is required - just a computer and internet connection. We'd be happy to give you a demonstration.
Can I do a course as an individual?
Yes, you can book as an individual if you're not in a posiition to book a group. For courses to be a good learning experience, they do need to be delivered as a group, so we work with our close cousins at Mind//Shift for this. Pop over to their website and book yourself a place!
