MHScot Workplace Wellbeing CIC is a small disability-led Social Enterprise, based in Edinburgh, which supports the mental health and wellbeing of all Scotland’s workforce in the private, public and third sector.
Our main focus is on education, mental health literacy and culture, delivering courses, workshops, awareness raising sessions, focus groups and more; helping you to improve and create a positive, empowering and resilient workplace environment. Healthy working environments also create and maintain healthy home environments in which we can all can thrive.
We strongly believe that a healthy mind is the most important factor in creating a healthy workplace. Our focus on learning and development, education and supporting culture change around mental health in the workplace will help everyone achieve this and much more.
Preventing mental health-related conditions is significantly better than allowing them to develop and builds a healthier environment in which to talk about what affects us ALL.
Poor mental health and wellbeing is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society today. It is the leading cause of sickness absence in the workplace and can cause immense distress to those experiencing it – as well as those closest to them.
Let’s start making a difference and improving the lives of our Scottish workforce NOW.
Find out more about what the course entails. We run them regularly throughout the year and is a great way of attending the course if it’s challenging getting a group of 15 people together where everyone is available at the same time.
MHScot is very knowledgeable of their subject and being open and flexible to delivery and feedback from participants are able to adapt the workshops to the needs of the participants. Their facilitation skills in delivering a sensitive topic using case studies, small group participation and with a variety of audio visual aids not only helped to deliver a sensitive subject, but their personal touch helped encourage and ensure a safe learning environment.

We were keen to raise awareness of Mental Health wellbeing in the workplace and approached MHScot to deliver an awareness session on Mental Health First Aid. They are very knowledgeable and experienced on the subject of Mental Health. We all found the course really helpful in raising our own awareness of Mental Health wellbeing within the workplace and plan to run further sessions with MHScot in the future. We would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to raise awareness of Mental Health wellbeing.

Thank you for the way you led the course as it was very informative but with a lovely relaxed manner. I feel I learned a lot and am even now beginning to put some of this into practice. Thanks for the links it looks like it will be helpful. I will be recommending the course to some of my colleagues for the future.
I have actually put my training into practice today, a colleague had been struggling for some time and spoke to me about it this morning. He was very upset but I have signposted him to help; I am hoping this has made a difference to him. Couldn't have done it without you! So thanks again.
