About Us

We are Mental Health In The Workplace, a training provider, co-founded by Gary Johannes and Tamsen Garrie, both of whom have been supporting organisations and the well-being and development of the people who work within them, for longer than we can remember! 

We work in partnership with organisations to reduce mental health risk by inspiring a culture of wellness and creating a working environment where people truly thrive, so that the organisation thrives by default.

We specialise in providing training specifically around mental health and well-being, training that is unique in that, in addition to the generic content provided by other training providers, it incorporates the most up to date neuroscientific information and knowledge available, genuinely equipping people to manage their own mental health, so that they can be the best version of themselves in every area of their life, including their work.

Our facilitators are not only competent trainers, they are also qualified and experienced therapists, running their own practices where they successfully treat individuals suffering with stress and anxiety and a wide range of associated mental health issues, everyday.

As a result, our training:

Increases Understanding and Self-Awareness

 

Inspires Self development and Behavioural change

 

Improves Confidence and Competence

 

Incites Action and Intervention

 
Our philosophy is simple: 

We believe that every human being has the right to understand what stress is, what creates it and how it impacts the brain and the body, so that they can take responsibility for their own self-care and proactively minimise the possibility and the impact of stress, both in their life and work. 

And we believe that organisations that inspire a culture of wellness and create a working environment where people truly thrive, will ultimately thrive as a result.
