PlayTime: 2–3 hours

This energising session is the perfect workshop to develop your team’s Communication and Creativity.

Laughter is the perfect medium and will establish immediate engagement and rapport. It relieves stress and provides an injection of morale to galvanise everyone to work together and create a positive team atmosphere.

Using play, clown and improvisation techniques, your team will learn how to:

  • Collaborate better

  • Communicate effectively

  • Connect with their audience

PlayTime also works as an ice-breaker session at conferences and exhibitions and can add light relief to longer training sessions and meetings.

PlayWell: 2–3 hours

A workshop created with the guidance of Emma Reynolds, Head of Learning and Development at Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England.

MHFA England delivers training courses that teach members of the public how to help a person who may be developing a mental health issue, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health issue or in a mental health crisis. Like traditional first aid, Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to treat or diagnose mental health or substance use conditions. Instead, the training teaches people how to offer initial support until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis resolves.

Now a trained Mental Health First Aider, Lauren has created a fun and informative workshop to help continue the conversation about the importance of Mental Wellbeing. Through improvisation and clowning games, the workshop will help to understand and encourage conversation around causes, symptoms, and possible support options for a range of mental health issues.
