It was important to find the correct company to partner with to help carry out part of our wellbeing strategy that focuses on mental health. We wanted all our Managers to attend, Mental Health (Awareness) Training to not only give more support to our colleagues should they need it but also to give the leaders of the business some level of understanding of this complex area. Sofology already had an in-house offering which consisted of Mental health first aiders and an overview module but wanted a baseline consistent approach that we knew was externally ratified and delivered by professionals in this field. Upon contacting Sara at the Mind Solution it was apparent immediately how knowledgeable both her and her colleague Nicky were around mental health, the impact within organisations and the effect it has on both a colleague and business if training and support is not available. The vital USP that the Mind Solution is they get to know your business, what language is used i.e. colleague or employee, the internal statistics and any employee assistance programme or support already available in the business, making it even more informative and relatable to our colleagues. Since the training we have received a number of great testimonials from our colleagues stating how it is one of the best training offerings they have been part of and how useful this will be in their roles. Both Nicky and Sara are exceptional facilitators, dynamic, empathetic and informative and our colleagues remained engaged throughout the sessions. We believe in its value and the positive impact on a personal level some managers have said that it has had that we committed to 6 monthly (numbers dependant) sessions for all managers in development programmes and external candidates that we hire.
