Dear Ms Lea,

 

Thank you for your information request. Please could you clarify, are you
asking about staff who have completed the accredited Mental Health First
Aid run by MHFA England, specifically?

 

I await your clarification before we can proceed with your request.

 

Kind regards

Laura

Dear Ms Lea,

 

Thank you for your information request, received on 14/10/2019. Please
