TalkOut Is Born

TalkOut Is Born

TalkOut, an organisation dedicated to mental health launched on the 1st July to educate organisations about how to deal with mental health in the workplace.

TalkOut is on a mission to break the stigma and discrimination around mental health in order to change people’s lives for the better. Jill Mead, Co-Founder & MD had a growing curiosity around mental health and well being and started exploring what was being done by organisations for their employees. Jill identified a glaring gap for an organisation that could provide training, support and advice specifically related to mental health in the workplace.

Utilising her passion to make a real difference, Jill set up TalkOut with Jim Cockburn – a mental health advocate and founder of the Martin James Group, which TalkOut is a part of, alongside companies such as the Martin James Foundation, Key Assets and Foster Talk.

The TalkOut team are experts in mental health and work collaboratively with organisations to devise tailored solutions that help create mentally well workplaces that can add real commercial value to businesses.

Their services include; Insight, Consultancy and Training, with courses including:

Building Resilience and Self Care.
Mental Health First Aid Training.
Line Manger Training.
Mental Health Awareness.
Mental Health Champions.
Integrative Therapeutic Strategies Course.
Men At Work.
Boardroom Mental Health.

Together, we will make it OK to not be OK in the workplace.
