On Tuesday 16th May Manx Minds will be hosting the very first MHFAer® conference on the Isle of Man!
We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker this year will be Jeremy O' Dwyer- Founder of, 'Talking Mental Fitness'. Jeremy’s career spans over forty years in both public and private sectors, including many years working in export sales. Following redundancy, he eventually started a new career as a member of staff within the police service. Jeremy survived a suicide attempt in 2010 after years living with depression. He now shares his experience and puts his knowledge and understanding to good use, promoting mental health awareness issues in the workplace.
Other local speakers include, Paula Dunlop - Cushla, Grace Eames - Nedbank, Lynsey Harris - KPMG, David Higson - Bereaved Survivors of Suicide IOM. Tickets can be booked via Eventbrite.
If you completed your MHFA course between two and three years ago, then now is the time for a Refresher Course. In September 2022, MHFA England/Isle of Man launched a brand new updated version of the 2 day, adult course. This course now includes the added benefits of an exclusive MHFA App, a digital manual, MHFA resource bank and on-going access to MHFA CPD opportunities. In addition, all of the courses delivered by Manx Minds also include a wealth of resources and information about local support and services, particularly relevant to Isle of Man, drawing together professional expertise from across the Island.
