Our Resilience Ethos 


Resilience is a key component for employees to thrive in a dynamic and demanding workplace, rooted in an informed awareness of mental health and physical health.  


Our Resilience Building Approach

  • Organisations with rapid growth, changing cultures & high value stakes need reactive and adaptive strategies to effectively lead and manage a young workforce.

  • Empowering and strengthening the mental, physical and cultural foundations of an organisation ensures a positive and productive environment for the whole organisation. 

  • 3Pillars mental health and resilience trainers design and implement a programme of in-work engagement and training sessions, to equip you with the tools to enhance the resilience of your team.

Mental Health & Resilience in the Workplace


Work-related stress, depression and anxiety are large and serious contributors to workplace illness and employee burnout. The impact of this on an organisation is huge.


 In the UK, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at any one time, including in the workplace. Many employers do not understand enough about the topic and so can do little to help, which often results in a person’s mental health worsening


Our Approach to Mental Health and Resilience

  • We train and equip peers and managers across an organisation, to respond effectively to mental health issues. 


  • We equip your organisation, as teams and as individuals, with the knowledge and toolset to take mental health action.

  • All our courses are accredited by Mental Health England and taught by trainers with over 30 years experience of mental health support.


Our Mental Health Model



Develop the ability to identify early symptoms of mental health issues + feel confident signposting others + developing personal strategies



Create an in house group of first aiders and champions to advocate best practice.



Support staff within the organisation who have responsibility for others. We call this 'Supervision'.



Continuous development & learning; refresher training drives improvement.


Leadership Development


Nearly one third of employees reportedly don't trust management. Strong leadership motivates employees, improves productivity and creativity. It is even more crucial in times of challenge, when uncertainty can affect the most resilient of organisations. Leadership develops over time, to support and steer the uniqueness of each organisation, it is an investment, in people and a company.  


How We Support Your Leadership Development

  • Leadership needs to adapt to the new challenges and changing demands of today's fast paced work environment, both new and established leadership.

  • Rapid growth across an organisation and high value stakes require investment in new leaders, to equip them to effectively manage new management challenges.
