  • Staff training support to embed wellbeing practices into your organisation in order to maintain positive mental health and support those who may be struggling.
  • Staff workshops to ensure staff feel confident about spotting signs of negative emotional or mental health, have awareness of strategies they can use to support themselves and others, know when additional support may be needed and know where and how external support can be accessed.
