We strongly recommend the full day course. This is based on feedback from managers who have completed the course as this allows more time for applying and testing scenarios and gives adequate time for staff to practice discussing reasonable adjustments and applying the management standards for stress and action planning.   


Everyone who completes the course gets:

  • A certificate of attendance
  • A manual to refer to whenever they need it
  • Mind resources and signposting material


We strive to create courses and resources that everyone can access. When you book we will ask if you will need course materials in accessible formats. We will also ask you about any accessibility requirements you may have regarding online or face to face training and safely accessing the chosen venue.


We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.


Training for Line Managers is delivered a closed course (only your staff, at a location and on dates of your choosing). Available to be delivered in all areas of Hampshire or can be delivered entirely online.


We offer flexible pricing based on organisation size and sector as well as the size of your purchase.


“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 😊
