“Promoting Mental Health and Safety in the Workplace”


“People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”




“Balance” is our mental health and safety course – lasting 1 -2 days. It looks at how we can effectively manage mental health problems in work and education as they arise.

Who we are

We are an upbeat and optimistic organisation. We are approachable and humane.

We commission a lot of our own mental health research looking at the interplay between mental health and the workplace.

We are accredited course providers and our courses will only be delivered to you by people who have personally overcome mental health issues.

All our staff are forthcoming and welcome open dialogue with our clients. We believe that conversation fosters a real understanding of mental health.

Lets face it we can all Google this stuff but there is only so much you can learn from the internet.

We have created the Mental Health and Safety at Work Charter where businesses and organisations can sign up to our mission to promote the reduction of mental health discrimination.
