Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace such as anxiety and depression. Research has shown that
work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best. Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research found that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.

  1. Liz Lowther:- Primary Teacher

    Thank You “You’ve really put my mind at rest. I really do understand the whole subject matter much better now. Really interactive, despite being online. Great course, lots of helpful information, and a fab trainer Alison!”

  2. Tracy Easton:- Primary Teacher

    I Feel Quite Different “I actually feel quite different, working through this course … more aware, capable, and confident to be able to support those around me going through any health issues. Alison was super supportive, encouraging and allowing us to share our own personal experiences, giving a lovely relaxed feeling to discussions on a quite heavy and challenging topic. We were able to laugh and speak freely throughout and I’ve learned so much. ”

  3. Darren Sowerby ” Health, Safety & Environment Compliance Manager, l’Anson Bros Ltd.

    “The course was run in a professional and structured manner, it was delivered in well balanced sessions with adequate breaks. All learners were encouraged to participate and contribute. I found the course to be extremely engaging and have taken a lot away from it.

  4. Vicky Knight

    Involvement Encouraged “We were a smallish, online group but were really well facilitated. I signed up at very short notice, but Alison supported the pre-work that I needed to do, in quite a short time. She was really friendly, supportive and easy to talk to. Everyone was encouraged to be involved through out the course.”
