Regulated Training Provider

Body and Mind First Aid Training was founded by British Army veterans John Barry & Danny Leicester. Our instructors consist of a core group of veteran instructors, John, Danny, Ben and Tommy. Together we have a combined service time of over 40 years, with many operational tours.

Our hands-on experiences mean we have seen and all too often, had to deal with too many friends, colleagues and other veterans finding themselves in situations which could have been avoided had the right training and knowledge in relation to mental health been readily available.

We aim to deliver regulated First Aid for Mental Health Training far and wide whilst making this invaluable resource affordable and accessible for individuals and corporate clients regardless of organisational size.

We believe more people need to know more, talk more and most importantly listen more when it comes to mental health. Our mental health training aims to tackle stigma head on as well as empowering as many people as possible to start that all important conversation.

It’s not just CPR that saves lives.
