1 in 6 working age adults will experience signs and symptoms which would meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health illness, such as anxiety or depression. By training people to spot the signs and symptoms early things can be prevented form escalating and people can access important early support.
As the training arm of Hull & East Yorkshire Mind and North East Lincolnshire Mind, Mindworks can draw upon over forty years of experience in supporting people experiencing poor mental health. This knowledge and experience can be brought to the training, to give real life examples of how the learning can be implemented in the workplace. By booking training with Mindworks you can be safe in the knowledge that you are also supporting mental health services and support in your local community.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind are proud to be working alongside East Riding of Yorkshire Council to encourage local people to become Mental Health Champions.
A Mental Health Champion is someone who takes action to raise awareness of mental health problems amongst their friends, family and within their community and challenges mental health stigma.
Mental Health Champions are not expected to act as counsellors or share their own experiences if they are not comfortable doing so. Champions are focused on changing attitudes. They create opportunities to start up conversations about mental health, dispel myths, and make it easier for people to seek support.
As part of the partnership, we are now able to offer up to 160 FREE places on our Mental Health Awareness Course. The courses will run over the next few months and covers:
- What mental health is and how to challenge stigma
- A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
- An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
- Confidence to support someone in distress
