Wellbeing Workshops

It can sometimes be challenging to look after ourselves, sometimes we just don’t know where to start, or perhaps we need some fresh ideas and a bit of accountability. Manchester Mind has developed a selection of wellbeing workshops to encourage self-care and promote positive wellbeing in the workplace, and in your personal life.

These sessions are a great addition to mental health awareness, line manager training and mental health first aid.

They are all designed to be 60-minutes in length but can be extended to provide more depth to the learning and more time for interaction.

The following workshops have been designed to be practical and experiential.

  • 5 Ways to Wellbeing

    Experience effective ways to work the 5 Ways to Wellbeing into your day to day life – Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give & Take Notice

  • What is Stress?

    Understand what stress is and how it affects the body, and learn some coping techniques to manage stress.

  • Building Better Sleep Habits

    Address your sleeping habits and why its important for your wellbeing, including learning a pre-bedtime muscle relaxation if there’s time at the end

  • Managing Work-Related Stress

    Gain an understanding of work-related stress, work-life balance and burnout, before exploring actions you can take inside and outside of the workplace to manage work-related stress.

  • Introduction to Mindfulness

    Understand what mindfulness is, experience some breathing techniques and meditations, and how mindfulness as a tool can be learnt – For beginners

  • Mindful Eating Workshop (face to face)

    Food is one of the pleasures of life, but quite often we eat mindlessly, eating while watching tv or looking at social media and not even noticing what we’re eating or how it’s tasting. In this interactive session, we’ll talk about the importance of being in a relaxed state when we eat, do a couple of mindful eating/drinking meditations, and give you an opportunity to reflect on how eating more mindfully might impact on you and your food choices.

  • Activating Happiness

    Explore what lifts your mood – music, play, laughter? Understand the link between laughter and positive wellbeing and experience an uplifting session.

  • Mental Health Taster

    A basic session designed to get people talking about mental health, symptoms of anxiety and depression, and the importance of having conversations with meaningful connection.

  • Supporting Mental Health – Effective Conversations

    We sometimes worry about starting a conversation or saying ‘the right thing’ if someone talks to us about their mental health; this workshop will build confidence on speaking about mental health with peers with an opportunity to look at a case study.

  • Anxiety and How to Calm the Nervous System

    This workshop builds an understanding of what anxiety is and the response it has within the body. It then introduces some calming techniques and some ways to challenge anxious thoughts to manage feelings of anxiety.

  • S.A.D. Seasonal Affective Disorder

    Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression that some people experience during particular seasons or times of year. However, many of us can feel a little lower during the winter. This workshop will outline the signs and symptoms of S.A.D., give you some tips and tools to keep you motivated throughout the darker months, to regulate your natural body clock, and to help ease those winter blues.

Other sessions can be available – we have a range of expertise for mental health, wellbeing, and children and young people. Please let us know if there is a topic you’d be interested in that isn’t listed above as we’re keen to adapt our offer based on organisation needs.

We have updated our prices for any training taking place from January 2024 onwards. We understand the challenges created by the cost of living crisis and, with this in mind, have not increased our training prices over the past two years. We have now taken the decision to revise our prices based on our own costs and needs as an organisation whilst ensuring our courses remain excellent value for money for organisations wishing to invest in mental health support.

For our 60-minute bitesize workshops, we have also made some changes to our pricing structure. This is so that our workshops can be delivered to larger groups to meet your needs.
