People Programme Manager, Royal Voluntary Service

We have been working with Oakwood since 2019 when they trained our Mental Health First Aiders. Royal Voluntary Service is delivering the NHS Volunteer Responders Programme in relation to COVID-19 and Oakwood have developed bespoke courses for us that have been delivered through live trainer-led virtual sessions. These have included awareness programs on safe suicide conversations, self-care and group reflective practice. They have also provided one to one wellbeing support calls for members of our team. The virtual courses and support calls have been tailored to meet our specific needs and have been extremely well received by our team. It's made a real difference in bringing groups together to talk about real-world examples so they can reflect on what they did and improve learning. It's also really helped build people's personal resilience during these difficult and challenging times. Oakwood have been very helpful and supportive and it's been a pleasure working with Gemma, Terry and the rest of the team.

Terry was an excellent trainer and we came away with a much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening. 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.
