Our award-winning half day workshop
The Essentials workshop is the foundation for workplace wellbeing, and it’s at the core of everything we do at The Mental Health Toolkit.
Unmet emotional needs trigger symptoms of mental ill health. Understanding how to meet them helps you understand what you need to be well, and enables you to take care of yourself and those around you.
The Essentials workshop will help you:
- Undo misconceptions about mental health
- Raise awareness of your emotional needs
- Support yourself and those around you
- Better understand sleep and mental health
- Reduce the cost of sickness absence
- Create a healthier place to work
The Essentials course covers:
- The Mental Health Continuum
- Emotional Needs
- Sleep & Depression
- Security & Trauma
- Innate Resources
Go beyond the signs and symptoms to learn about the most exciting and cutting-edge approach to workplace wellbeing in the UK.

Thank you so much for this – a really insightful and practical take on modern mental health and wellbeing.
This was one of the best training courses I’ve ever done. Very informative, the trainer was amazing. I’ve recommended it to several people!
Some excellent training from The Mental Health Toolkit by Suffolk Mind that provided some valuable insights and practical tools for personal/professional development, and working with young people (highly recommend!).
There was some really useful information on the Mental Health Continuum (the spectrum of mental health that we are all on) and how to take care of yourself and those around you.
We also discussed the Emotional Needs & Resources approach, and I particularly enjoyed the information delivered around sleep and its relationship to mental health.
I’d recommend this session for any managers or teams as a whole looking to develop their understanding around mental health.
The Essentials course was great. It felt well-balanced between a large amount of information, but with enough time for it to not feel overwhelming. Penny was a great trainer and was very approachable, knowledgeable and very happy to answer any questions we had. The group size and content felt appropriate also.
I felt the topics covered were important and interesting. Timing (topics, breaks, discussions) was fab and slick use of tech with the breakout rooms. Penny is a great teacher, engaging, articulate and thorough.
Really good session, friendly and approachable. Relevant to professional and personal life.
Karys was a fantastic trainer – she was patient, inclusive and approachable. The content was really interesting, easy to understand, and would be relevant to anyone. I got so much more out of the training than I expected, and feel really aware of how to implement this into my everyday life.
All members of the Becketts team attend The Essentials course as part of their induction. It ensures that everyone begins to understand their own mental health and creates a common language amongst the team. I believe it is an important foundation of creating an open culture within the organisation.
I learnt a great deal, not least how the language and research around stress and mental health has evolved. It’s one of the best courses I’ve done on the subject
Really well presented, engaging and interactive – good mix of listening and doing. [The trainer was] very knowledgeable and welcoming [and] made a really safe space for us to have open conversations. Best course I’ve been on in a while.
Highly accessible and enjoyable training – in itself it was my first step to a revised approach to self care.
Karys and Fraser were really approachable, friendly, and supportive of us all, and they delivered the information in a non-judgemental and accessible way.
It was a vast amount of information delivered in an easy to understand way. Phil was very engaging and definitely knows what he is talking about! It was a brilliant course – thank you.
Some great feedback from the staff. Highly recommended training. Thank you!
The Essentials session delivered to our senior managers was greatly appreciated. The feedback that we received was very positive and not only did it give a general awareness of what it means to be emotionally healthy, it also gave practical advice on how we can satisfy our emotional needs. The course was well-delivered, engaging and very valuable to us as we look to develop our focus on wellbeing in the workplace.
