When deciding to introduce a new wellness programme to Fernwood Women’s Health and Fitness, Emma saw the importance of gaining a practical understanding of Mental Health First Aid.
The result - Over 300 staff members have undertaken training, and the programme has become a requirement for club owners, managers and trainers who run wellness sessions.
