About Us

MHScot Workplace Wellbeing CIC is a disability led Social Enterprise, based in Edinburgh, which supports the emotional wellbeing of Scotland’s workforce and volunteers by offering mental health courses, workshops, awareness raising sessions, focus groups, 1-to-1 support and more that is going to help you to improve and create a positive, empowering and resilient workplace environment. Healthy working environments also create and maintain healthy home environments in which everyone can thrive.

OurShades of Blue campaign to raise awareness in the workplace and see as many (if not more) Mental Health First Aiders as physical First Aiders in every workplace was launched in Jan 2017.

Mission Statement

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 (including volunteers etc.) achieve this and much more. We also know that people with mental health related conditions are far less likely to be in work and this is something we’d like to support the improvement of.

Our Mental Health First Aid Officer Programme supports this mission so that there is a real culture change and a long term vision for the future.

We also deliver Scotland’s Mental Health First Aid (adults supporting young people between the ages of 11 and 17), after all, our young people of today are our workforce of tomorrow.

Creating Healthier Workforces and Workplaces in Scotland

for current and future generations

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 including full-time, part-time, fixed-term employees; casual staff, interns, those on apprenticeships, the self-employed, freelancers, contractors, agency and bank staff and volunteers/trustees.
