Challenging inequality in 2022/23

Supporting staff wellbeing

Training and development

Brook is committed to being a mentally healthy organisation. Our culture and the delivery of our services are informed by an understanding of trauma and its impact. Our rolling programme of mental health awareness and trauma informed practice training sessions are available for Brook colleagues, and a specific mental health champions programme is offered to managers. These programmes ensure that Brook staff have a shared understanding of mental health and are better equipped to support their teams and our service users.

I practise a lot of trauma informed approaches and I thought this training today was amazing. It was really informative and gave me further insight to certain aspects.”

The knowledge, insight and passion of the instructor resulted in not only upskilling me from a knowledge base perspective, but also increased my confidence via de-stigmatising mental health generally.”

Coaching programme

Our internal coaching programme has been tailored to suit the complexities of our work and the varying development needs of our staff. In 22/23, six staff achieved professional coaching qualifications, developing a range of policies and procedures and supporting more than 20 colleagues with 1:1 coaching. Our coaches are experienced managers and senior leaders who support staff to find their own solutions to work based issues as well as career and personal development. Our coaches all receive professional supervision to enable them to continually develop. 

Wellbeing conference

In February 2022, Brook ran a wellbeing conference for Brook staff with a programme of expert talks on the menopause, financial health, nutrition and guided relaxation opportunities.

It was really good getting to be with so many other staff in person and having chance to chat. I thought the counselling talk was excellent as it came from a really authentic place of personal experience.”
