Mindcanyon Are Mental Health Education Specialists. We Deliver Mental Health Education Through Workshops.
We believe that everybody has the right to a for-filling and meaningful life, and with the right support and intervention should not have to suffer through mental ill health.
Our mission is to educate, support, encourage and help empower those facing mental health challenges, and show recovery is possible.
We believe that to achieve optimal health we must care for our mind, body, and spirit, yet, when it comes to taking care of our minds, we often dismiss the importance.
When we ignore our mental health, we overlook the very part of us that helps us to know and achieve our best selves.
Mindcanyon are here to help you through your mental health journey.
We help people to lead mentally healthy lives.
Work-related stress, depression or anxiety is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work.

Did you know one in for British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem each year? the most common is mixed anxiety and depression, but there are many other issues which have huge impact on a persons life, and the people around them.
Anybody who works around people with mental health problems needs to understand each condition fully, likewise, anyone who has seen someone experience mental health problems would benefit from understanding the meaning, causes, affects, symptoms and management of the condition.
We offer half day, one or two full days of training, covering mental health conditions, and how to help people when experiencing mental ill health.
After multiple childhood traumas , and a turbulent adulthood wrecked by addictions and mental health problems leading to multiple suicide attempts , I emerged a man with a mission to change the world of mental health to make sure no one has to face the adversity I had. I've chosen to give meaning to my life through helping others, leading to my current vision to help people around the world build and live lives of meaning and purpose beyond adversity.
In 2015 I experienced a nervous breakdown whilst at work, later that same year I attempted to take my life on three occasions.
I sought professional help, and this ended my corporate career.
I was diagnosed with borderline PTSD, High Functioning Anxiety, Addiction, Stress, Depression and Childhood Trauma.
On diagnosis I chose to take the holistic approach to cure, and self medicated by walking Britain to find out what help was available to myself, and others, all whilst raising awareness for Mental Health & Homelessness.
Whilst walking I spoke to businesses & organisations about what help and support they give their staff, it was very limited, largely due to the fact many were inexperienced or uneducated in Mental Health support.
I know the everyday pressures or corporate life, I could also see there was a gap in the market for somebody with lived experience to educate organisations on what signs to look out for, and how to help employees approach there employers about their Mental Health concerns, this is when and why I created Mindcanyon
