Why MHFA and why chose us to deliver?

Mental Health is just as important as physical health. And since the global pandemic we have seen a rise in those requiring help.

Mental health first aid helps to spot early warning signs in someone who is struggling and to prevent their mental health condition getting worse. This can be done by encouraging them to seek the relevant help whilst providing hands-on first aid skills first aid to prevent a crisis, such a suicide or self-harm.

Gilly at Obsidian Mind is a mental health nurse. With over 20 years qualified experience. Anyone can deliver a training course, but Gilly delivers a training experience - being able to back up the content with a wealth of knowledge and experience to engage the delegates in the learning journey, moving at a pace to suit the group.

I'm Gilly Steel

Being a Qualified Mental Health Nurse since 2002 has taught me that every moment filled with doubt, anxiety or pressure can be used as a catalyst for a fresh start. I have learnt that we are all able to help maintain our own mental wellbeing - and that of others - no matter what our background. With the right attitude and training, we can all tackle the stigma of mental health.

Gilly’s expertise and personality made the course engaging and enjoyable. There was no question she couldn’t answer and I learned a great deal from her. She was an absolutely brilliant instructor, thanks so much.


My sessions were so personal and comfortable, I felt at ease and ready to move through my issues 


We have learnt how to communicate far more effectively and our journey is much smoother now. The sessions were so relaxed and we worked at our own pace 


The course was well structured with a lot of useful information, a good balance of information, tasks and discussions. The instructor was excellent with good presentation skills and an in depth knowledge of the subject, drawing on a range of experience to help illustrate the material.
