Mental health in the workplace

Working with business

Exceptional coaching and training with a social impact

Support for Businesses

We believe that good mental health and a good place to work are interdependent and doing nothing costs.


The cost of poor mental health to employers before Covid-19 was £45 billion a year. That cost comes from sickness absence, reduced productivity and staff turnover. [Deloitte: Mental Health & Employers]


As the workplace evolves it is important organisations invest in their greatest asset, developing the confidence and resilience of managers and staff to embrace the transition that lies ahead. 


We can help achieve your objectives and evaluate the return. All our workshops can be delivered in a format to suit you online and if possible in person (depending on government guidelines) from multiple, bitesize workshops to in-depth half and full day sessions. 


Building on our 14 years of experience and expertise, the key outcomes of our work: -


1. Strengthen the skills and resilience of individual leaders, managers and staff.


2. Build the skills and confidence needed to manage well and to excel. Enable effective conversations around stress and anxiety whilst having clear boundaries.


3. Enable managers and staff to spot the signs of poor mental health and have successful conversations about it.


By choosing to work with us, you support the charity to improve mental health, reduce the stigma and you're showing your customers, employees and suppliers that your business takes mental health seriously.
