    • Min – Mindful

    • G – Giving

  • Looking after ourselves (episode 2) Self-awareness is key to taking care of our mental health and wellbeing. 
    Charlie Waller trainers Julie Turner and Debbie Spens exchange ideas about how look after ourselves, especially at times when we’re finding things more difficult.
    Their strategies will help support you through difficult times and enable you to notice when family, friends or colleagues are struggling, empowering you to reach out with kindness and understanding.

  • Workplace wellbeing: looking out for your colleagues (podcast episode 3)

    The relationships that we share with our colleagues can have a significant impact on our mental health, as well as on our overall job satisfaction, productivity and wider wellness.
    In this insightful podcast, our trainers Penny Aspinall and Andy Caress discuss the reasons why many people feel that support from colleagues is the most effective way to protect wellbeing at work. This discussion provides helpful guidance to proactively support colleagues using four simple steps: stay connected, notice when someone is struggling, reach out to them and ask for help if you need it.
