How we help

Staying OK

Future proofing your mental health

Are you ready for what life might throw at you? Stressful events or circumstances can throw us off balance. How will you protect your mental wellbeing? You might feel like you're doing OK now. We want to help you make sure you stay that way.

The Staying OK project helps you to future proof your mental health and be prepared for when something unexpected knocks you off balance. Through our free guided learning groups and one-to-one coaching, you’ll develop awareness and skills to prevent stressful events having a negative impact on your life. This is a unique opportunity to invest time in yourself so you have more energy to focus on the things that really matter to you.
