A big thank you to North West Safety and Construction Group team and Claire Oakes for allowing us to introduce our programme. I think our unique approach to tackling mental health in the workplace went down well judging by the interest and questions asked. Thank you also to Sean O'Donnell and Marc Ewen who did our team extremely proud - talented individuals. The overall reception was extremely positive and great conversations were started! I spoke with one manager who shared a story of their anxiety, saying they felt lighter and hopeful after hearing the explanation of the neurological basis of Ill mental health! Thats what its all about isnt it! They carried on to say that the education part of the talk was very promising and would take back their thoughts etc to their workplace as follow on training and services were very much being thought about. A great day ... We don't just train you, we educate, we empower and we care and use our collective lived & shared experience to inform our service delivery. Looking forward to providing a refreshing and different approach to mental health and support for you all in the near future!
A truly great day!
Matthew Coleclough (Director)
