Description

Change the Culture of Mental Health in the Workspace

Mental health has never been more important and companies up and down this country are starting to pay attention. We all recognise there’s a significant problem

…but what do we do about it?

We’re so excited to be hosting this event locally in Southampton with guest speaker Dafydd James (former international rugby player) and myself to address this question.

This morning event is designed especially for business owners and senior management who want to change the culture of mental health in their workplace.

See you there,

— Peter
Mental Health First Aid expert and instructor






9 out of 10

Directly and indirectly, mental ill health currently impacts 9 out of 10 people and is the leading cause of death in young males aged 24–49.

If you believe that prevention is better than cure, come be a part of this crucial discussion.

We will be exploring…

  • What the impact of mental health is in the workplace.
  • Whether we are creating a culture that makes it worse or better.
  • Practical ideas about how to improve mental health.
  • Insight into what other leading companies are doing.

“Peter came and delivered a presentation for us in 2016, and our staff still talk about it. This really helped to drive interest in our mental health training programme which we have rolled out to all our managers. If you get the opportunity to hear what Peter has to say, I would thoroughly recommend it.”
— Alison Garbutt, Head of Strategic Projects, WHSmith


“Over the last few years I've been passionately exploring mental health in the workplace, lifting the lid on the mental health stigma. Peter spoke at our Stakeholder Meeting and his charisma and passion for mental health was contagious. At Landsec we chose Peter as our MHFA instructor and he has trained over 10% of the company. We are now beginning to see the change within our companies culture, and I thoroughly recommend attending this event if you can.”
— Clive Johnson, Deputy President IIRSM
