We care about your people and your future. If you are a business of 20 or 20,000 individuals, having a workplace mental health policy is best practice.

Clinicians will then present tailored recommendations, guidance and a meaningful, relevant and clinically informed strategy. 

Our mental health consultants specialise in creating workplace mental health policies that promote and protect all employees’ mental health and well-being. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to what a policy should include, so we’re here to guide you every step of the way –  from consultancy to training and reporting.
