Martin Wraith, Director at The CPC Link

At Positive Effect we are passionate about improving the mental health and wellbeing of employees.

How we can help

We provide holistic health and wellbeing solutions, tailored to an organisation’s size and structure. Working directly with business owners and managers, we focus on employee mental health to deliver practical solutions such as wellbeing strategies, training, workplace adjustments and environment changes that in turn:

  • Reduce absenteeism, presenteeism and staff turnover
  • Reduce mental health related employment tribunals
  • Increase productivity
  • Increase profit

Mental ill health is an issue for all employers

  • 1 in 4 people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point
  • Mental health problems at work cost £1,300 per employee in the UK economy
  • 80% of people feel uncomfortable discussing their mental health with their employer
  • 1 in 3 people personally know someone with a mental health condition


We work with organisations to understand their current approach to mental health and wellbeing, highlight any issues or challenges and identify changes needed to policy and procedures to create positive effects. We use a wide range of audit techniques to really understand the organisational culture:

  • Targeted interviews with representatives at all levels
  • Review of relevant policies and procedures
  • Impact review of health and wellbeing against targets/ key performance indicators
  • Online employee questionnaire

Action planning

We will then consult with senior stakeholders to develop a holistic approach based on audit result and our expertise in developing whole organisation approaches.

Together, we will produce a clear and measurable action plan to implement change and monitor its success and effect on the mental health and wellbeing of the organisation.


Our courses are both CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) verified.

Whether you are a director or senior stakeholder looking to develop a whole business approach to health and wellbeing or an individual looking for ways they can improve their personal wellbeing, we have a course that will suit:

We are qualified specialists with experience in directly delivering a range of health and wellbeing interventions. As such our training not only provides knowledge, but importantly provides proportionate, low or no cost practical and easy to achieve tips to enable self help and create lasting change.

Whichever course you choose, it will make a real difference to your organisation’s mental health and wellbeing, to look after your most valuable resources and allow you to increase productivity through reduced absence and increased focus.

We found the training very useful, and plan to present to our board of directors some suggestions on how we can make use of what we have learnt. We each found references to things that had impacted us on a personal level and the training enabled us to connect these things to a professional environment and guide us to making positive changes in our work place.
