Bespoke Mental Health Awareness

Helping you look after the mental well being and resilience of yourself, colleagues and others

Our Bespoke Mental Health Awareness courses can be tailored to meet the specific needs of frontline staff, managers (at all levels) or HR professionals at no extra cost.

The aim of these courses is to enable delegates to look after the mental wellbeing and resilience of themselves and others who they come into contact with as part of their work.

Educating people about mental health helps to open up conversations, breaks the stigma and encourages mental health resilience. It also raises awareness of where to go for help, allowing people to recover more quickly.

So what's in the course...

Well… it’s bespoke, so it includes whatever you want it to! 

Generally however, courses will enable you to recognise when someone might be experiencing a mental health issue, and give them the confidence to support and sign post them to the professional help the may need.

What our clients say about our courses..

We are very proud of the amazing feedback we have received. Here's how some of our students feel about our courses... 

Lord Simon Wolfson CEO, Next

Oakwood's approach to Mental Health training was perfectly pitched for a senior team. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening...we came away with much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. Most of all, the training helped to dispel the stigma and fear of mental health - giving delegates the confidence to recognise some of the symptoms and a desire to do what we can to help people through periods of mental ill-health.

Roy Clark Director of Retail and Trading, Barnardo's

I would be happy to recommend Oakwood Training for professional, tailored and informative training. Terry and his team have delivered a number of training sessions for Barnardo’s nationwide and we will continue to use their service. They delivered bespoke training programmes to meet our needs and the courses were engaging and well received.

Helen Mather Group Learning and Development Manager, Longhurst Group

Oakwood deliver both Mental Health and Personal Safety courses for us. They really understand the issues our staff have in their roles and were able to adapt to this rather than just a generic off the shelf module. All I can say is how pleased I am with the work they have been doing with us since 2016. The feedback from staff is not just excellent, but how it adds value to what they are doing.

Gareth Johnson National Operations Manager (NCS), Catch 22

The post course follow up information from Oakwood is brilliant, it really finishes off what I believe was an excellent training day.

Keith Crampton Learning and Development Manager, North Hertfordshire District Council

Oakwood have proved a great training provider to work with. Terry always strives to understand the organisation and context of the training. His course design and Oakwood's delivery very much hit the mark for us resulting in great initial feedback and subsequently behavioural change. In addition Oakwood are flexible and easy to communicate with.

Liz Cole Head of Health and Safety, Catch 22

We have worked with Oakwood Training for the past five years. Terry’s knowledge has been invaluable in designing courses and operational procedures that help us reduce risks to our staff. I consistently hear great comments from staff who have attended courses and I enjoy working with Terry on the different approaches we need for our diverse range of services.
