Workplace Mental Health video

Please see the Workplace Mental Health, Know the Risks video. The video highlights the importance of acknowledging mental health wellness in the workplace.

Building Resilience


Resilience is about our ability to adjust to difficult and demanding situations or change in a way that does not compromise our every day health and wellbeing. We can learn to be more aware of our behaviours, the controls we each have, where stressors lay and what we can do about managing them more effectively. 

There are things that we can develop to help improve our own personal resilience if we understand it better.   

Resilience workshops

The resilience workshops aim to improve personal resilience and promote best practice in the workplace. The programme explores the techniques to improve personal resilience and discuss the the importance for manager's to provide practical advice as well as look after their own health and wellbeing.

A number of resilience workshops are being held locally. Please find details of the locations below:

5 Ways to Wellbeing

The '5 Ways to Wellbeing' publication by the New Economics Foundation identifies 5 steps that can be built into daily lives to improve wellbeing. 


With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues or neighbours. At home, work or school or in your local community. Think of these as cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich your daily lives.

Be active

Go for a walk or a run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly discover an activity which you enjoy and one that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

Take notice

Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment whether you're waling to work, eating lunch or talking to friends. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters.

Keep learning 

Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course. Take on a different responsibility at work. Fix a bike. Learn to play an instrument or how to cook your favourite food. Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.


Do something nice for a friend or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out as well as in. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.
