We provide mental health awareness and resilience training for staff and workers in all industies and sectors.

Workshops for Employers

Mental illness is of increasing prevalence, and does not discriminate. The impact of this on business is amplified by the fact that clients who have accrued debt, as well as employees needing sick days. Headucate exists to change this and make a difference to individuals and organisations alike.

17.9Million

Working days lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety, 2019/201

55%

of all working days lost due to work-related ill health2

People with mental illness are and can be valuable employees. Debt can be recovered successfully, with the right approach. Education, empathy, protocols and consistency are the cornerstones to creating an environment where mental health is at the heart of the employee. We believe prevention is better than cure. We can of course support staff to identify and signpost people who are struggling, but wouldn’t it be great to create a culture where we prevent it from reaching that stage?

Headucate specialise in developing comprehensive mental health strategies and training and providing valuable feedback on learner engagement and understanding.

Workshops for Children & Young People

As we all know, within the mental health field there is a massive gap for care, especially young people in the community. We recognise that many parents do not receive support for their children until they are acutely unwell leaving them feeling abandoned, frustrated and at times helpless.

16%

50%

of mental health problems are established by the age of just 144

We are committed to delivering education around mental health and wellbeing to young people, parents and anyone involved in the young person’s recovery.

Mental illness in children and young people is amplified by the fact that stress occurs prior to the development of coping strategies to manage it. Headucate seek to change this by engaging with young people to give them insight into emotions and what can be done to cope with them in a safe and friendly environment.

Adolescence is a particularly challenging time in terms of perceived expectations from peers, teachers, and family. The change in attachment from family to peers and the development of their identity leave them with a lot to cope with alone, prior to additional stress and symptomology. Dopamine plays another important role of their development in terms of the facilitation of risk taking. Nature’s way of helping us to learn from our mistakes, however, when combined with mental ill health, this can be frightening for the person and those around them.
