We offer local businesses the support, advice and training they need to manage mental health at work.

This service enables employers to adopt a mentally supportive workplace culture. Options range from adopting policies on managing mental health at work to encouraging staff to have an informed approach to managing their own stress levels and knowing when and how to ask for help.

A change in workplace culture from senior management down is vital, but can seem daunting. Adopting a strategic approach with small incremental changes over a period of time and making best use of available services can reduce the time commitment of already overworked staff, and encourage a more organic process from within the organisation itself.
