Mental Health & Wellbeing

Positive Psychology for Mental Health & Wellbeing

The Mental Health & Wellbeing Initiative was launched in 2020 to further research on Positive Psychology at work. It falls under the Positive Organisations Project led by the Positive Psychology Centre.

The initiative delivers CPD training on Positive Psychology for HR staff and managers, and mental health first aiders, on how to build policy and practice on mental health and wellbeing at work. It also runs CPD training on integrating Positive Psychology into organisational leadership and teamwork.

Students on the Level 5 Diploma in Positive Organisational Psychology who are applying their learning process to a professional role in leadership, management and/or training may link their Module 2 and Module 3 case study research to this initiative and publish a journal article or white paper on their findings following certification.

The initiative is open to building partnerships with organisations on in-house research and training on mental health, wellbeing, leadership, and teamwork.

Developing Positive Organisational Cultures

The essence of a Positive Organisational Culture is one where employees feel valued, engaged, empowered, enabled and listened to at all levels. An organisation with this at the core doesn’t simply pay lip-service to matters of Mental Health, Wellbeing, Equality and Diversity; they actively explore ways to embed support strategies into the work culture and relevant policies.

The benefits to an organisation of creating a Positive Organisational Culture are many and include reputation, greatly enhanced staff retention, staff being motivated by means other than financial reward, staff become advocates and true followers. This in turn enables an organisation to manage the impact of change far more effectively. Organisations with this approach to building positive organisational cultures are also the first to spot trends and do their learning from the ground up, including their staff members in ways that matter.


Positive Organisations Training (CPD)

Building a Positive Organisational Culture could begin with making sure that staff members are “ok”. Companies based in the UK and globally are now taking the mental health and wellbeing of their employees more seriously. No longer is it a taboo topic but now something of direct relevance to employee satisfaction and retention at work as well as productivity and profitability for the companies who employ them.

Investing in mental health and wellbeing training starts with a conversation. Why does this topic matter and which ways are appropriate to engage in it? Quite often, managers and directors are hesitant to open this door as they may feel they don’t have the knowledge or experience to carry the conversation forwards.

We offer 4 levels of engagement on this topic:

Positive Leadership & Engagement Training (CPD)

Organisations today are typically well aware of the latest trends in leadership and teamwork. Much revenue has been invested across the board through staff training and development. Yet for many, it is also an ongoing process of development and discovery. Work contexts are shifting, particularly at the level of those with global outreach or a multi-generational workforce.

In such a dynamic context, how do managers and directors ensure that their communications styles and approaches are reaching the audiences needed in the most effective and positive ways? How do teams effectively communicate, particularly across cultures and other identity markers? And how do leaders and teams function effectively with implicit regard for mental health and wellbeing?

In addition to Mental Health & Wellbeing, we also run the following 6-week CPD course on request:
