“I just wanted to express a GIGANTIC thank you for the fantastic training you’ve delivered over the last few months. It’s amazing to think you’ve held 11 sessions for us since February!

We have had some really good feedback from our managers, many who have cited they feel more confident in approaching these conversations and understanding the responsibilities employers have when dealing with mental health in the workplace – which is great to hear.

Hope to keep in touch with you all, and that you’ll be available next year for some more training for our people 😊
