We engaged Mindful Employer to provide our employees with information about mental health awareness. We wanted to give our employees the skills to help themselves and to help others should they need to.  We had contacted a range of mental health training organisations initially, but no one responded with the interest and information like Mindful Employer.

From our first contact, Mindful Employer have been understanding, knowledgeable and dedicated. Janet was a delight to deal with during the organisation process, keeping us informed every step of the way.

Yasmin was our facilitator and contacted us prior to the session to discuss our needs. She was approachable and organised – this gave us confidence that our upcoming session would be a success. What we didn’t expect was how great of a success it would be. Yasmin’s down to Earth nature and wealth of knowledge made for a highly engaging session. All staff members were actively participating in the session – asking questions and having great discussion between one another.

The skills that were taught at the session are lifelong skills that staff can use both at work, and outside of the workplace. Many staff commented that they felt more confident in having conversations with others about mental health, and how to appropriately help someone needing support.

We would have no hesitation in engaging Mindful Employer again and would highly recommend them to anyone considering providing mental health training within their business or organisation.
