As a BACP accredited organisation, North Staffs Mind offers a high quality training experience delivered by passionate, qualified and experienced trainers.
We offer a range of courses aimed at enhancing resilience and supporting the mental wellbeing of the workforce. We initiate an open, confidential and supportive environment where lived experience, sector case studies and local signposting ensure relevance to every delegate.
We know that each organisation’s culture, needs and aspirations are unique and so work hard to understand the individual needs of our corporate clients.
In addition to providing face to face group training, the pandemic has enabled us to appreciate the value and benefits of remote (digital) training delivery. Feedback demonstrates positive client satisfaction from our digital service offer, as it is equally engaging yet often more practical.
