RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Underpinned by research and enriches by subject matter expertise, our programmes deliver a compelling business case, improving working lives, reducing costs and enhancing reputation.
The Mental Health Continuum
Our mental health is on a continuum, and may move along this continuum at any time. Any movement away from mental health towards issue or illness can be as debilitating as changes in our physical health. Both impact our ability to do what we could, should, or want to do, and affects our performance at work. Yet mental health issues are often overlooked. We want to help you address this to empower businesses regarding managing mental health at work, and improve both employee engagement and business performance.
Research shows that businesses that do not focus on mental health, have increased costs. Mental health should be considered in alignment
with business goals. If noticed early and acted upon then people can continue to thrive and be productive.
Our unique approach has been developed with businesses in mind.
Our mental health training workshops and training are tailored to evolve and grow alongside the needs of our clients. We can’t generalise mental health, so we don’t believe that training around it should be generalised. We offer both online and face-to-face training delivery options to suit each individual organisation’s needs.

We bring our passion for creating inclusive workplaces around mental health
We put adult to adult, open conversations at the centre of our mental health workshops and training programmes, removing the fear and stigma surrounding mental health and mental health in the workplace. This enables and empowers employees to notice changes, and then have the competence and confidence to act. Colleagues will no longer be afraid to start a conversation because they don’t know how to talk about mental health, because mental health support at work will be accessible and available. The result? An engaged, proactive and supportive workforce. And that’s important – because your success as a business depends on it.
