I am Ellender Wildey, a National Trainer & Associate Trainer for MHFA Wales and freelance Mental Health First Aid Instructor trained and licensed by both MHFA Wales and MHFA England.
Do you want to support your employees with their mental health but don’t know where to start? This is where I can help you and your organisation through the training I provide, to assist you with your mental health workplace strategy to help save money that is lost due to staff absence, staff loss and, therefore, the need for and cost of recruitment and training of new staff because of mental health related illness. .
By training people in Mental Health Awareness and Mental Health First Aid, I am part of the movement to raise awareness and begin to end the stigma surrounding mental health.
As an experienced Mental Health First Aid Instructor, I teach the skills, knowledge and confidence to step into situations and help those in need and how to provide first aid for mental health. To help others to recognise the signs and to open their eyes to the struggles and vulnerability of people who deserve to be heard and supported in the workplace, communities or at home.
Throughout my life, compassion and empathy for other people has been of utmost importance to me. I have continually found myself drawn to the needs of people at their most vulnerable, because I know what it feels like when you are totally vulnerable and having someone to help can make the difference sometimes between life and death. To step in and make a difference, to witness the positive changes that can be made when a battle is not fought alone. Standing shoulder to shoulder with someone, to give hope, to reassure, must be one of the most rewarding aspects of my life. This is a mix of nature and nurture; it is both my personality and my own lived experiences of trauma and subsequent mental health challenges.
I am experienced in delivering MHFA training to safety critical industries, including transport companies.
I currently deliver the online training courses only, therefore I am able to cover all areas of Wales.
