Connect Yorkshire member Sarah Darbyshire of HR Solutions Yorkshire is offering fellow CY members discount on their Mental Health First Aid courses in 2021. Mental Health is vitally important, especially in these trying and uncertain times, so we would highly recommend taking advantage

‘Mental health and wellbeing have always been important to me both personally and professionally.
As a HR professional of over 25 years, I see the impact of mental ill health on people’s personal, home and work lives.

Born and bred in Yorkshire, I was introduced to walking as a student and to this day I still find solace in getting out into the countryside, and appreciating being in nature and getting some exercise. On a weekend you will often find me in the Yorkshire Dales or Lake District with my husband and our border collie. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, pilates and swimming.’
