MHScot Workplace Wellbeing is Scotland's first social enterprise, offering national and international workplace mental health training courses.
We support organisations to develop and embed a more caring and compassionate workplace culture, and we equip employees with the skills and knowledge they need to support mental health and wellbeing at work through education, training, and awareness courses.
Great organisations invest in people and workplace wellbeing, and for every £1 spent by employers on mental health interventions they get £5 back in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover. (Deloitte, 2022)
We are a Social Enterprise (Community Interest Company) that collaborates with ethically conscious businesses that value positive social change. In keeping with this ethos, profits are reinvested in the community through community awareness initiatives and third-sector training.

“"I wanted to learn more about how to best interact with colleagues with mental health issues. MHScot helped me by making me more aware of various common mental health issues, giving me skills and confidence to be a mental health first aider and showing me how to be a better listener! I found the experience enlightening, constructive, informative, confidence boosting. I would recommend MHScot to anyone! Especially those in a management position."”― Axis Studios
“"We wanted to prioritise physical and mental wellbeing and were keen to arrange guided on-line mental health first aid training for three staff members. MHScot helped us by broadening our understanding of mental health and wellbeing and the role of a mental health first aider. We will now be able to support staff members during what is an especially difficult time due to the impact of Covid-19. We liked their friendly, approachable facilitator, Catherine. There was a good balance of self-directed learning and guided sessions. We found the experience hugely beneficial both individually and as an organisation. We would recommend MHScot to people who need any sort of mental health/wellbeing training."”― 4J Studios
“"Mental health is something I find really interesting and it is so often overlooked by people as being a "problem/drama" rather than a real health issue. I am really keen to help break that stigma and learn more about it so I can help others open up to the idea of it being as important as physical health. MHScot helped me by guiding me through ways to start a conversation with someone who might need help & what approach to take for different situations and mental health issues that someone could face. I found the experience interesting and useful. I would recommend MHScot to people who need to raise awareness of mental health in their workplace."”― The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland
“" I liked their easy to follow lessons, a combination of written and visual pieces which made the course comprehensive and worthwhile. Also, Fiona was great - very friendly and easy to listen to. I found the experience very worthwhile and believe that the training provided will make a difference to someone's life."”― The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews
“"As a result of this training we've created of a Mental Health First Aid network which supports all staff and students in the workplace, together with a MH policy, guidance for MH First Aiders and the development of a specific online platform to support all. MHScot provided excellent training for skills which we can use in the workplace."”― University of Edinburgh
“"MHScot provided us a safe space to learn and share a little with excellent guidance and support. We now have a greater understanding of MH issues for all of us (I'm sure). Indirectly, it was a good team building exercise also. We like Sarah's skills, knowledge and manner, and we found the experience positive and enjoyable."”― National Theatre of Scotland
“"I have heard really good feedback from my colleagues about the courses they have done with MHScot and wanted to gain knowledge that would help me to support my workmates by doing Supervising/Leading First Aid for Mental Health (Level 3). MHScot helped me by providing a lot of easy to read and understandable information, plus very supportive face to face lessons.It kept me interested and involved, which allowed me to remember things easier and absorb the information better. I would recommend MHScot to people who need training in mental health areas to increase their knowledge and understanding. It can be useful just for your own benefits and for everyone around you too."”― Energy Savings Trust
