What our clients say
“I have been working with Strategic Wellbeing since October 2021. They are our training provider for Mental Health & Safety Ambassador training and associated supervision and CPD training for the network. We consistently receive good feedback from our participants who attend the training programmes. They have also provided some consultancy advice and delivered a number of sessions to varied audiences, for example, HR teams, leadership teams and all staff. These have been very well received, with lots of engagement from the participants. As a consultant, I value their insight and find myself using Strategic Wellbeing as a sounding board. They have become a trusted adviser for Arup in the space of wellbeing and mental health. I have found the trainers to be very good. The whole process has been efficient and easy. I highly recommend Strategic Wellbeing.”
“It was useful reflecting on the right methods to use when confronting these issues. Often it’s too easy to end up ‘hi-jacking’ conversations and applying personal examples, which is often not the most helpful approach. Understanding about the classifications of mental illnesses outside of the more popular ones seen in the media (depression/anxiety), and also reflecting on how these are stigmatised against was helpful. Overall, I feel as though this has helped me understand my place as a mental health ally and ambassador, and given me confidence to know where my influence should start and end.”
“I really will take the SPEAK acronym with me. As HR, having that framework will help me remember to catch everything needed in conversations without focusing on solving the problem.”
“The training was broken down in a way that all the information could be absorbed properly. I think I found the acronyms most useful as they are easier to remember in a situation where you might not be necessary speaking about mental health but need to apply the framework.”
