Our mission is to reduce stigma relating to mental health in the workplace. We do this through providing world class, facilitated training to individuals at all levels within an organisation to understand, manage and promote mental health.
Mental Health In The Workplace
We all talk about physical health. Every half marathon is celebrated, and how a cough won’t shift is discussed at length. The fitness and wellness or otherwise of our colleagues is a part of our office life. However, some subjects are not discussed and they usually involve our minds.
Mental health is often thought of as a measure of unhappiness, imbalance or even mental illness. Instead, mental health is a measure of the state of our minds. It is a key determinant of the workplace environment as it affects employee productivity and team relationships. Sleeplessness, changes in eating habits and increased alcohol consumption can, for example, be signs of mental health issues although typically we may not think of them in this way.
About Mental Health at Work
We provide advice and consultancy to improve mental health within workplaces through education, skills development and cultural change.
Our bespoke, facilitated training will raise awareness of mental health issues, discuss appropriate language and challenge myths and assumptions in order to raise overall literacy around mental health and equip employees with the knowledge and skills to have conversations about mental health. This is supported by line manager skills, guidance, practical application and organisational support to ensure that consideration of mental health is promoted as an integral part of working life. The training is flexibly constructed to meet the needs of any organisation irrespective of size, industry or workplace settings.
