We are looking into moving some of our current face-to-face training online and developing supportive webinars for line managers, and are busy exploring this. We currently have capacity to run the following courses online:
If you’re interested in commissioning either of these courses, please contact training@bristolmind.org.uk.
We’ll endeavour to keep this information updated, and will let you all know when we have more online courses available.

Training for your Organisation

Bristol Mind works with you to provide the most appropriate, cost effective training and consultancy to support you to manage mental health and wellbeing proactively and minimise the impact of mental ill health on your business and your people. We help you to raise the level of health, wellbeing, and engagement across your organisation so that your business and people can thrive.
With over fifteen years of solid experience in delivering high quality training, Bristol Mind also co-produced the steering group which developed the ‘Bristol Thriving at Work Group – Mental Health at Work‘ report. This is the first group in the UK to develop a collective commitment from organisations across the private, public, and voluntary sectors in Bristol to take a city wide approach to making employee mental health a priority.
Commissioning training or consultancy from Bristol Mind means that not only are you getting highly experienced trainers and quality training and consultancy from an organisation that is at the forefront of employee mental health – but also that the revenue generated from this work goes directly into our local unfunded services, to support people in Bristol.
