“Oakwood’s approach to Mental Health training was perfectly pitched for a senior team. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening. We came away with a much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. 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.” Next CEO – Lord Simon Wolfson

Who is this Masterclass for?

Ideal for business owners who employ people and those who have responsibility for looking after the mental health and wellbeing of employees.
