Suffolk Mind launches online training hub for business

A new e-learning platform has been officially launched by Suffolk Mind to help make mental health training more accessible for businesses.

The E-Toolkit was unveiled to guests at a special business breakfast at the Uniserve Group HQ in Felixstowe this month.

The online learning platform is being offered through Suffolk Mind’s workplace wellbeing service, The Mental Health Toolkit, and is designed to offer business employees easier access to training.

Jon Neal, CEO of Suffolk Mind, explained, “This unique platform has been in development for several years and is full of useful information to help employers and employees better understand their mental health and wellbeing.

“Through the E-Toolkit we want to make mental health education more accessible, meaning people can dip in and out without the time pressures of a more traditional course.

“In particular, we know businesses with teams working shift patterns find that time is the main barrier to staff accessing vital mental health training.

“A huge thank you goes to the teams at both the University of Suffolk and the University of Essex, alongside our partners at StrategiQ for making this possible.”

Training offered through the E-Toolkit includes an introduction to the Emotional Needs and Resources approach, as well as the Mental Health Continuum, split over 15   bite-sized modules.

These cover the causes of stress, the warning signs to look out for, and tools which empower people to better support themselves and those around them.

Each module includes videos, animations and articles to support different learning styles.

There is also a link to take the Emotional Needs Audit, a survey to help people check in with their wellbeing while supporting Suffolk Mind’s research.

Jon added: “Since launching The Mental Health Toolkit in 2022 we have provided mental health training to businesses across the country – and the introduction of the E-Toolkit will further extend our reach.

“Feedback so far has been fantastic – including a second-place Innovation Prize from national charity, Mind – and we are confident that the E-Toolkit will prove just as popular as our existing offering.”
