  • Listen to the person non-judgementally

What do our clients say?

Hi Trent,

“Excellent delivery of a topic that touches on sensitive and difficult areas, handled in a supportive and informative manner with great awareness of individuals in the group. The information learned will be used in work and in my personal life, thank you Trent.”

Kind regards

Hi there,

“We found the MHFA course to be extremely informative. It contained pertinent examples & provided us with a valuable ‘tool box’ to utilise when issues arise.
Before the course we had much less confidence assisting and appropriately signposting our employees. Now, we have lots of relevant skills and information to better support our staff, and develop enhanced respect & rapport.
Wouldn’t hesitate contacting Tetris again… in fact, we promptly did for our fire warden training requirements!”

What did you enjoy about the course, and what was your favourite part? 

  • Relaxed environment, easy going considering the subject
  • Group Involvement – Informal training for a heavy subject
  • There is a lot going on with people I did not know about, now I feel very informed on how to deal with these issues.
  • Getting a better understanding of mental health issues & how to initially deal with them
  • All the information was relevant and very thorough. A light-hearted atmosphere was encouraged which was essential considering the topic.
  • Interactivity with the rest of the attendees.
  • Overall the course was very informative and enjoyable.
