"We’ve received one of the best feedback scores of any courses we have run at FCBStudios"
We have engaged Altruist Enterprises to deliver mental health awareness sessions with our employees, as well as a 2-day Mental Health First Aid session for a smaller group.
The training was engaging and valuable and we’ve received one of the best feedback scores of any courses we have run at FCBStudios in the last few years. The training also generated discussions and new initiatives internally.
"I have no doubt that those who attended will now be well equipped to deliver the Mental Health at Work course to our managers effectively"
We have had the pleasure of working with Altruist Enterprises over the past 12 months. The company has supported our implementation of Paragon’s employee mental health well-being commitment. This included the delivery of the Mental Health at Work Train - the trainer programme to colleagues in the HR and Learning and Development functions. All that attended the training found it to be engaging, interactive and extremely beneficial. Time with the Altruist trainers was invaluable as they were both happy to explore topics in detail and provide helpful insights. The useful content, workbooks and exercises provided essential information and enabled delegates to reflect on their learning. The assessed task gave delegates the opportunity to ‘try things out’ and receive feedback to develop further. I have no doubt that those who attended will now be well equipped to deliver the Mental Health at Work course to our managers effectively.
"An excellent course!"
The Strategic Enabling Team (SET) recently took part in the Mental Health First Aid Half Day course, delivered by Altruist Enterprises. The course provided a very helpful overview of mental health and highlighted key topics such as how to approach someone, signposting and how both managers and employees can cope in a pressurised working environment. Content was relevant and enjoyable and delivered in a professional and sensitive manner by the instructor. Toolkits and supporting booklets will certainly be a useful reference point. An excellent course!
"Altruist Enterprises really fulfilled all of our aims!"
Altruist Enterprises really fulfilled all of our aims! It’s rare that I go on a course and find it interesting, but this training was so excellent that we were happy to engage in role play etc. which is an activity that usually makes me uncomfortable.
"The course was expertly delivered with lots of time for discussion and also in an informal and enjoyable nature"
The full day managers mental health training was very insightful. Not only did we learn more about different mental health conditions but also how to identify signs and symptoms in colleagues. Additionally we discussed how we could bring up the conversation of mental health in colleagues and then also put this into practice and tested our listening skills. The course was expertly delivered with lots of time for discussion and also in an informal and enjoyable nature.
