Well Mind

Well Mind is a stress management course for staff and/or managers in any industry who have an interest in finding ways to manage stress at work.  You will learn tools and techniques that can help you reduce the impact of stress in your life.

Why Well Mind?

Stress is on the increase and is one of the leading causes of sickness in the workplace. While some pressure can be good for us as it can help us get things done, excessive pressure over a long period of time can make us ill. Too much stress can also make us less productive so learning how to manage pressures and stresses is essential for work life balance. Work is important as it helps us maintain self-esteem and our identity which is vital in promoting mental wellbeing.

Extended periods of stress can also lead to a wide range of health related problems such as high blood pressure and increased risk of blood clots. These are worsened by the ways that we choose to cope with stress, such as smoking, alcohol or comfort eating, which make us even more at risk of illnesses such as heart disease or stroke.  Well Mind looks at how to manage stress and helps people discover which stress management techniques work best for them.

Through engaging with Well Mind, individuals will feel more confident through managing their stresses and employers will see a reduction in the number of days lost through stress related illness. A happy, healthy and productive workforce will feel valued by their employers.

What is Well Mind?

Well Mind is normally delivered as a one day programme but delivery can be tailored to suit your organisation on request. Well Mind provides an understanding of stress management in the workplace. Participants discover how to make positive changes such as becoming more calm, focused and resilient through a range of techniques and tools. Through these processes the session also promotes greater self-care though better sleep and good mood foods, “me time” and relaxation techniques.
