Mental wellbeing and Agile Collective


Mental health is of great importance to us at Agile Collective, and therefore the goal of this policy is to ensure we all have the skills and tools to allow us to each manage our own, and each other's, mental wellbeing.

Some important things to note

What we do at Agile Collective

Mental Health First Aid courses

These are strongly encouraged, and there is no limit as to how many individuals can be trained at any one time. If you are interested, please take a look at the Mental Health Training resources page.

Please contact the People Circle if you are interested in doing one.


This is often on a request basis, but buddies can be set up to just have someone to talk to. There is no formality to these chats, but are meant as a way to talk about goals, issues, and concerns with someone.


Where useful, we supply resources that are available for all employees to access freely and without needing to make their needs visible to all unless they require that.

Steps if you need assistance

As part of our approach, below are the first steps to helping us all to get any help we might need for ourselves, colleagues, friends, family, and anyone we might see.

IAPT (UK only)

Stands for “Improving Access to Psychological Therapies” and is an NHS programme that we should utilise where possible.

NHS England » Adult Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme

NHS Tiers of mental health support

IAPT is well financed “gold standard therapy”, it is what we should use, paid services are not necessarily better.

These are the general tiers that are involved within the NHS to help understand the levels of help required:

  1. self help
  2. IAPT group therapy, telephone therapy, up to 6 sessions
  3. IAPT face-to-face, video up to 12 sessions
  4. AMHT serious
