The HUMAN COST
Anxiety and stress highlight the earliest forms of poor mental health in our community. Using pre and post programme surveys, we measure levels of anxiety using validated tools found across health services.
In a sample of 900 people, approximately 1 in 4 people recorded scores indicating they suffer from moderate or severe anxiety that would cause a doctor to refer them to other services. Only these people were not in a doctor’s surgery. They were going about their everyday life.
SHORT COURSE. BIG IMPACT
The post programme shift in people’s anxiety levels is both significant and exciting. 24% of people showed signs of severe anxiety before the programme. This number was reduced to 13% as a result of the programme. Applying that shift to the UK population would be life-changing for 7.6million people.

TWO NUMBERS. ONE MISSION
We measured levels of stress and anxiety using validated tools found across health services. We noticed that approximately 1 in 4 people are potentially suffering high levels of anxiety that would cause a doctor to refer them on to other services. Only these people were not in a doctor’s surgery. The were going about their normal life.
The two numbers we believe should be talked about is the % of people in the suffering category before and after our programme.
POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH
“We all have mental health and it’s a key ingredient of performance, wellbeing, personal and professional growth. Many of us don’t have the fundamental skills that allow us to thrive emotionally, mentally, socially, and physically. As a direct result of the work we do, that is changing and because it’s skills-based, it naturally scales as people share the skills with colleagues, friends and family.”
