MEET PAUL LONGLEY
My name is Paul Longley and I set up Think Mental Health to improve wellbeing in the workplace for employees and employers alike. Having personally suffered poor mental health for over twenty years, my courses take real life experience and transform it into a positive, practical and powerful method of teaching about mental wellbeing.
Through insightful and enjoyable lessons, I show businesses in Hull, East Yorkshire and across the UK how to focus on mental health just as much as physical health, which can lead to incredible results.
Recently Think Mental Health was awarded Start-Up Entrepreneur Of The Year at the Hull & East Yorkshire People In Business Awards.

The dangers of poor mental health
Problems relating to mental health don’t necessarily make themselves known immediately. In many instances, an individual will feel increasingly affected until they reach a tipping point, which may result in them requiring sick leave and respite care.
Think Mental Health is dedicated to helping people start crucial conversations and take control over their mental wellbeing. By understanding the warning signs, being open to discussion and playing their part in creating a supportive work environment, each of your employees can actively prevent relatively small issues from growing into highly disruptive problems.
