A Message From The Founder
We help people deeply understand mental health so they can empower themselves and others to lower stress, feel supported and live more happily. We do this through our flagship Two Day Mental Health First Aid course where attendees learn how to spot signs of common mental health issues, have a supportive and non-judgemental conversation, signpost to appropriate help, all the while looking after your own mental health. We also write and deliver bespoke workshops where attendees build the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to help themselves and others.
My own experience of mental illness in 2016 was my motivation to step into the mental wellbeing space. My background is in HR and Management. I'm no counsellor, therapist or psychologist but having personal experience of mental illness left me wanting to do more. Education, talking, raising awareness, to support the drive of reaching a place where people can be open about what they're experiencing without any fear of judgment.
Nothing makes us happier than sharing our knowledge and being part of people's journey to increasing their awareness, knowledge, skills and confidence about mental health and mental health issues, the impact of stigma, identifying signs of mental ill-health and responding appropriately.
If we can achieve our mission, we can reach a place where people truly thrive. I know nothing is perfect but the impact could be astronomical. Relationships, studies, work, engagement, performance, productivity, profitability. It doesn't matter if you're an individual or a business - who doesn't want to thrive?
