What are Toolbox Talks?

Toolbox Talks are a fantastic way to facilitate an introduction to mental health  in the workplace.  Designed specifically for business, these talks can be tailor made to suit the needs and requirements of your organisation. 

We offer a Mental Wellness Toolbox Talk for Business (30 mins), as well as a more in-depth Introduction to Mental Health Talk for Business (2 hours). 


We were delighted to welcome Birchwood Highland to Cantraybridge College to introduce us to their Mental Wellbeing Toolbox.

The thirty minute session was pitched perfectly, driving home the message that mental health and well-being are important to us all as individuals and also to UK industry. We learned about how to support ourselves and colleagues when our mental health is challenged, from initially reaching out to others to sourcing the wide range of support available. Our thanks to Linda Birnie for her professionalism and expertise in helping us to understand that “it’s fine not to be fine”.

Many thanks for presenting such a thought provoking and informative presentation to our forum meeting yesterday.

The good level of participation from the 41 construction people attending demonstrated considerable interest in the mental health issues you raised.
