Let's start a conversation - "It's okay to not be okay"
To start a conversation: raising awareness and understanding of mental health in the workplace.
We all have mental health, and sometimes, like our physical health, it can become unwell.
To cultivate a culture of well-being within the school where mental health conversations can be had. A whole school approach; providing staff and employees the tools and resources to look
after their own mental health first and then able to help and support others within the school
including children and parents.
"One in 83 teachers (3,750) are on long-term leave for
stress and mental health issue"
"According to a recent study of suicide by occupation in England....
Nursery and primary school teachers are at greater risk"
"Ill-health among working age people costs the economy
"Sickness absence costs employers £9 billion a year"
The workshops offered are based on a prevention model of Psycho-education
Workshops are 60-90 minutes. Please call to discuss your needs and we will be
happy to help.

As per the Government Green paper: Oversee the help the school gives to pupils with mental health problems
Help staff to spot pupils who show signs of mental health problems
Offer advice to staff about mental health
Refer children/staff/parents to specialist services if they need to
Skills in how to support families where parents or their children have a higher risk of developing a mental health problem
Resources and signposting to relevant help and support
This will mean that schools will find it much easier to contact and work with mental health services and better support
Well-being should be a fundamental priority in all schools
“I loved the self care workshop today, Vaishali has such a calm way about her and it made me feel very quickly at ease. The session was very well structured, incorporating a diverse mix of movement, discussion and writing, which explained self care in different ways. I felt supported and heard within the group and Vaishali made sure we were all comfortable throughout. A wonderful experience - thank you so much!” - (A- musician, London.)

Thank you so much for supporting us, thank you for all the creativity and arts, thank you for listening to us and creating a space where we always felt safe. I have made friends in the course and I am taking away with me resources that I will always use. I especially loved the inner child work. Thank you so much! " (participant)
