The AJMH Story

Why Use AJMH Limited?

Dr A.J. Yates heads up all our training. He brings experience from a range of healthcare backgrounds. He is also supported by thousands of hours of practice providing first aid (and Mental Health First Aid) care to a wide variety of people of all ages.

His practical experience, coupled with his extensive doctoral research at the University of Westminster (investigating women’s experience of distress) makes him an authority on the impact of everyday distress (as well as diagnosable mental illnesses) on the wellbeing of those affected. 


24% of women and 13% of men in England are diagnosed with depression in their lifetime.

In 2013 there were 8.2 million cases of anxiety in the UK.

As an instructor member for MHFA England and accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, Dr Yates always applies the latest course content from MHFA England.  However, being local to Milton Keynes, overheads are low and courses are affordable. Service is also at a premium, in terms of personalised care, quality venues, and level of catering.

Larger companies can make savings by hosting Mental Health First Aid courses at their own premises. For details – contact us.
