Resilient People Launches New Mental Health Resource for the Nation’s Employers


Employers keen to support the metal health and wellbeing of their teams can now access a dedicated new resource designed to offer managers vital training across a number of key areas of mental health best practice.

Resilience Hub is the creation of Pontefract-based training provider Resilient People who work with several major UK companies including Network Rail, Kier Construction and Oxford University. The platform is an accessible, indispensable resource which provides a wealth of in-depth guides and tools, created by mental health professionals and available on demand.

In addition to helping staff to take a proactive approach to their personal wellbeing, the platform incorporates a unique gratitude jar, which helps users to recognise all of the things they are grateful for – a proven method of increasing wellbeing.

Research by the Centre for Mental Health suggests that mental health issues are prevalent in the workplace. It’s an epidemic that costs UK businesses around £34.9 billion per annum – making Resilience Hub a timely and much needed resource for employers around the country.

Estelle Penrose, Resilient People Director said: “We’ve been getting increasing requests to provide our partners with resources that can support their teams as and when they need it. Our new Resilience Hub is accessible from any device and will transform how our partners support their teams. We already have several of our partners using our online tools and were overwhelmed with interest at the recent Health and Wellbeing @ Work Show at the NEC.”

Resilience Hub was created by the Halifax-based Candle Digital. “Mental Health is such an important topic to address right now, and the Resilience Hub will help all of Resilient People’s clients raise awareness and knowledge in this area with their partners,” says Director Andy Jack. “We’re really proud to have worked on this tool that will have a big impact on business around the country and help Resilient People build on their recent successes.”

Barrie Penrose, Director said, “While we’re all increasingly aware of mental health and the need to support the wellbeing of our teams, it’s sometimes a difficult subject to broach and one that not all employers feel sufficiently knowledgeable about to raise. We created Resilience Hub to provide expert, trusted tools and advice so that anyone, regardless of their job title can access the information and guidance they need to safeguard and support the wellbeing of themselves and their colleagues in the workplace.”
