Thriving Workplace is a programme designed for businesses and organisations interested in the mental wellbeing of their employees.

The cost of mental health

This is a growing issue for many employers. The stark statistics on the impact on businesses, underpin the cost if this isn’t addressed:

• Mental ill health costs UK employers an estimated £24.9 billion a year
• 57% of all work-related ill health issues were due to depression or anxiety
• 15.4 million working days were lost due to work related stress


Training courses range from a general introduction to mental health issues to more in-depth knowledge resulting in trained Mental Health First Aiders in the workplace.

All of our training is fully accredited and run by experts. Topics covered include:

• what is mental health and how to challenge stigma
• common mental health issues
• how to start a conversation
• how to look after your own mental health wellbeing
• how to support someone in distress or experiencing a mental health issue

Courses are held in our office in the centre of Exeter or can be delivered from your premises. Costs range from £95 to £300 per person. To book a course please click here.

We are happy to discuss bespoke courses and costs depending on your need.
