The Charlie Waller framework
Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace
Understanding and supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is one of the most pressing challenges faced by employers and line managers today.
The human cost of poor mental health, and the potential impact to businesses, is significant. Cases of stress, depression and anxiety are on the rise. COVID-19 has forced the world of work, and the ways in which we approach our working lives, to shift dramatically.
Bespoke training and consultancy support
The Charlie Waller Trust has been working for over 20 years to improve people’s awareness and understanding of mental wellbeing, providing the education and skills to build positive mental health. Through our workplace mental health programme, we offer bespoke training and consultancy to recognise and address mental health issues within individuals and teams.
Work is a central pillar of our daily lives. Now more than ever, our workplaces need to be encouraging, nurturing and open environments that allow people to reach their full potential and speak freely about any mental health challenges they may be experiencing.
Investing in the future
By engaging with us, not only are you investing in the mental health and wellbeing of the people in your organisation today – you are also helping to create a mentally healthy workforce for the future: the income we receive from our workplace programme is used directly to fund our work in schools, colleges and universities.
Protecting and supporting the mental health of your staff is not a luxury – it’s essential. The Charlie Waller framework for mental health and wellbeing at work has been created to empower your people to build, and maintain, good mental health. Our expert team offers practical, evidence-based consultancy, training and support, tailored to your organisation’s needs.
Flexible options for your business
We offer a partnership approach, working with you over a sustained period and giving you access to our full range of services. We also offer one-off training courses and tailored consultancy if that suits your organisation’s needs better.
Let’s talk mental health, together.
You [Gemma] are an amazing trainer, very relatable and knowledgeable.
Managers are saying their awareness and understanding is so much wider and they’re benefitting from attending the sessions. It’s been such a positive experience.
We have been celebrating success this morning … two of our managers have been able to put their learnings into practise and implement a conversation with team members around how they are feeling which subsequently led to an open and conversation between them.
The training session was great and gave us the opportunity to raise the subject internally with the senior team. They’re much more bought into it now.
An absolutely brilliant and insightful session. Having helped draft our mental health policy based on the CWMT template it was really good to have Katie talk through the things we need to think about before we roll it all out.
At Boden, we have been delighted to support Charlie Waller. We’re passionate about the work they do to provide practical coping strategies, training and resources around mental wellbeing. Mental health has always been an important issue for us as a business and our customers, so when the opportunity arose to support the Trust back in 2018, we jumped at the chance to help raise funds – and importantly – open up the conversation around mental health with both customers and staff.
