Welcome to our Online Training page. Here you will find our excellent range of training classes relating to Mental Well-being in the workplace. Each class has been designed by us, based on our experience of working in real life situations across a large number of business areas. Our classes are much more than content. The knowledge and experience we hold is unique and reflected in everything we deliver.
Our class numbers are capped to ensure a high standard of delivery and effective learning. Classes can be delivered to your business as required in the form of webinars.
We prefer to use live webinars so personal interaction can occur. Our experience shows learning by pre recorded videos or webinars can limit the potential learning and retention of information.
Mental Well-being in the workplace is our passion. We enjoy delivering classes to support employers in raising awareness, providing managers with practical tools and empowering staff to take responsibility of their own Mental Well-being.
Each webinar has time allocated for any questions which may arise.
MindSafe at Work are currently running the following classes on a regular basis. We can also work with you to create a bespoke class if the need is identified within your business.

Mindsafe FIRST – Suicide Prevention Awareness and Skills Training
The FIRST thing we want to do when considering the effect of suicide in our communities or organisations is to prevent it happening at all. Just one suicide is not acceptable!
Although there are many elements in preventing suicide, MindSafe FIRST focuses on raising awareness, encouraging people to talk about how they are feeling and where to get support.
Exploring these three things, will strengthen the ability of those who attend the online session to support people in crisis, as well as reminding them to look after their own mental well-being.
The objectives of this short programme are:
- To increase awareness of suicide prevention
- To reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and suicidal behaviour
- To promote and encourage those in distress to reach out for support
- To train those working within community and voluntary organisations to have the ability to pick up on early signs of distress or poor mental well-being
- To ensure those attending the programme feel confident in supporting those who may feel suicidal and know where to signpost for support.
- To establish a team of individuals within an organisation who can support those bereaved by suicide or those exposed to suicidal behaviour in others
- To improve awareness of formal and informal sources of support
- To enhance the local community in preventing and responding to suicidal behaviour within their organisation or neighbourhood.
Running over 90 mins, this vital session can accommodate up to 8 attendees at a time, giving time for discussion and skills practise. Attendance certificates provided.
