Mental Health Foundations Training

Enlightened People, Supportive Culture

Being able to nurture our own mental wellbeing helps us realise our potential in life and work. Being equipped to support those around us helps us create open, authentic, and supportive work cultures.

Enlightened Staff, Supportive Culture.

Due to the cost and resources required, traditional mental health training is often restricted to a fraction of a workforce, and typically addresses very acute problems that don’t always apply to a whole workforce.

Given its potential for profound cultural impact, we believe that quality mental health training, designed specifically for the workplace, should be a part of every employee’s development - not just managers - and be delivered in an engaging, bite-sized format.

On-demand Mental Health Training

Due to the cost and resources required, traditional mental health training is often restricted to a fraction of a workforce, and typically addresses very acute problems that don't typically apply to the majority of a workforce. 

Given it's potential for profound cultural impact, we believe that quality mental health training, designed specifically for the workforce, should be a part of every

employee's development - not just managers - and be delivered in an engaging, bitesized format. 

That's why we created Foundations Training - a scalable collection of self-guided programmes that equip employees with an understanding of mental health and how to adequately support those around them, without overloading any one person with unrealistic expectations. 

Accessible

Available to every employee through the Unmind platform, the digital nature of Foundations Training means users have access anytime, anywhere. 

Practical

Foundations aims to improve confidence in supporting those around us, while being mindful no one person should have to take on the role of a therapist. 

Digestable

Our experience with self-guided programmes shows that people learn best in a rich, bitesized format. Foundations contains real-life stories with practical tips to create an engaging learning experience.
