& Mental Health Awareness Training
Mental health awareness and training is one way we can change the experience of people affected by mental health difficulties
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. It can happen to anyone, at any age and at any time so it’s vital that people have the confidence to talk about mental health and wellbeing with how to respond and where to go when problems arise.
Promoting better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace has also never been so important. Research by Mind shows that work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives, even more so than financial problems, and can stop people performing at their best. But sadly, many people are hesitant to talk openly about their mental health in the workplace which prevents them from getting the help they need.
We are passionate about workplaces where everyone can thrive
By paying attention to mental health in the workplace, you promote happier and healthier workforces, unleash productivity and empower those with mental health difficulties to thrive. A compassionate and supportive culture will have a better chance of being able to spot when a colleague is in crisis, know how to intervene and support people on their journey back to wellness. Whichever sector you work in, we are here to help you create that workplace.

*Please note, our training is a chargeable service and all proceeds go straight back into supporting the invaluable work of Woking Mind in the local community of Surrey.
“At a time when our mental health and wellbeing is being challenged more than ever, we identified a need to equip more of our managers with the skills to hold constructive conversations about mental health in the workplace.
The bitesize training provided by Mind Woking was detailed and thought provoking. It gave managers a firm grasp of the current challenges in a post pandemic world. It laid out the importance of initiating positive conversations around mental health. It suggested tools to help managers hold sensitive conversations with individuals, and where necessary, signpost them to more support.
Managers who participated in the training now feel more knowledgeable and empowered to talk with individuals in their teams”
