Our Workplace Mental Health team is here to support and guide your organisation in building a culture at work that encourages and promotes both understanding and management of mental health.

We know no two workplaces are the same, which is why our programmes including mental health training and mental health champions are delivered uniquely to your needs to equip colleagues with the knowledge and tools they need to support both their own, and their team’s mental health at work.

What we do

Mental Health Champions

Train employees to raise awareness and understanding of mental health and mental illness within your workplace, being the driver for internal campaigns, engagement and a source of support to others. Once Mental Health Champions are trained we’ll provide a programme of engagement activity including webinars and toolbox talks to support them, and bring Champions together regularly to share experience and learning.

Mental health awareness training

Mental health training at work should be viewed as equal to first-aid training. Mental health training is vital for colleagues to provide an understanding of mental health conditions, tools and guidance for daily wellbeing-management, and to give them the power to access to support if they need it. Find out more about why you should train with us.

Therapeutic Coaching

Four in five small business owners tell us they’re experiencing poor mental health. Therapeutic coaching is an innovative blend of counselling and coaching designed to help you to reach your potential as a small business owner or leader whilst considering the impact on your mental health. Our coaches are qualified with a background in mental health support so are uniquely placed to help you work through any challenges you may be facing.

Facilitated Group Peer Support

Support employees in high-stress roles or supportive roles with regular group sessions with our trained therapists. Our facilitated sessions provide a safe and welcoming environment for colleagues to chat in small groups and receive tools and knowledge to equip them for the future.

Remote training

Our online sessions are facilitated by one of our expert trainers, who bring the content to life with engaging and interactive digital elements. All you need is a computer, internet access, your audio and camera enabled, and a quiet room.
