Feedback – testimony
This feedback was received in June 2019.
“Aster have had a fantastic experience with Dorset Mind Works, the range of sessions available and the content they cover is exactly what we’ve needed.
The practical tools and easy accessible way the training has been delivered has been outstanding.
Feedback from our colleagues has been as good as ‘it’s changed my life’ so you can’t do better than that!
Aster have been on a journey to change the conversation around mental health in the workplace and we’ve achieved a massive shift over the last 18 months with our MHFA training, however we needed to add in a range of support, learning and tools that would contribute to prevention of getting to the point of having a mental health issue, and helping people to maintain a healthy mind. Dorset Mind have helped us immensely in this area.
Lots of our sickness was stress related so we wanted to do something about it – Dorset Mind Works provided exactly what we were looking for at a cost that was absolutely fantastic.
All levels of colleagues have attended but it’s been particularly helpful to our frontline colleagues who are sometimes faced with difficult situations and long periods of remote working.
The knowledge and skills gained are absolutely transferable to life outside the workplace, good mental health doesn’t just start at the workplace doors – home life is sometimes more of a daily strain so helping colleagues keep their whole self healthy is the right thing to do.
Dorset Mind are responsive, flexible and experts in what they do and every £1 you spend with the them is supporting their charity work helping local people – it’s a no-brainer.
Just thank you, thank you for helping us and being great at what you do”
