Our vision is to normalise society’s attitudes and behaviours around mental health, by developing the skills we need to look after our own and others’ wellbeing.
We're on a mission to train one in ten of the population in England in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) skills – because we all have mental health.
Mental health education empowers people to care for themselves and others. By reducing stigma through understanding, we hope to break down barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.
Want to join us?
We are committed to rewarding our employees with competitive pay, a flexible and supportive workplace, opportunities to grow and develop, and our promise that we will put your wellbeing first.

We have an unwavering commitment to diversity, to enable each and every one of our people to have a full sense of belonging within and across our organisation. Our people are empowered to bring their whole selves to work and celebrate diversity in all its glory. We run regular lunch and learn sessions to explore and stay educated on a range of diversity, inclusion and equality topics.
It is our collective responsibility to create and sustain an inclusive environment. Our Inclusion Network advocates for diversity and accessibility across the organisation and ensures that everyone has an opportunity to be heard.
We celebrate key moments and events, such as Pride in London, Black History Month and International Women’s Day because they reflect the diverse makeup of our people. We recognise that our diversity makes us stronger, more innovative, more creative and this all helps us in better serving our people, our customers and our communities.
We are an equal opportunities employer and we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief, marital status, pregnancy or maternity leave status. We are especially keen to encourage applications from people currently underrepresented within the organisation, including but not limited to people from the LGBT+ community, people with disabilities, and people from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background.
