Workplace Wellbeing: Basildon Council
Basildon Council’s mental health champion, Cllr Andrew Gordon, said: “I believe it’s important that we as a society do everything we can to support those who are experiencing a mental health condition.
“As someone who has experience of a mental health condition I know full well what a debilitating impact mental illness can have on someone’s life. It was only when I built up the courage to share what was going on in my head that I was able to start the long road to improving my mental health.”
“Thank you to Motivated Minds for being part of our event which gave our staff an opportunity to share their thoughts and receive advice on managing their mental wellbeing in the workplace. Basildon Council remains committed to supporting a mental health friendly workplace”. Oct 2017
Exercise Buddy: Personal Challenge -Walking Marathon -Through motivated minds we had a great day out with some lovely people seeing countryside we hadn't seen before. Knowing that donations are used to benefit others was another reason why we'll be seeing more of Carla Andrews and her team. If only the world was full of people like we found here. - Niggly Romano Aug 2017
INside Out: Body Confidence - Went to a confidence course this evening for pre teens and it was fantastic. My 9 year old loved it and it sparked some frank conversations on the way home about self image. We'll definitely be back. - Debbie Donoghue May 2017
Well Youth Club - My daughter went to the youth club for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. It was such a relief as she is extremely shy, she finds social/group situations extremely hard. After speaking with Carla she assured me that the group would be just the place for my daughter and I agree. She went again last night and came home happy and relaxed. Thank you Carla , the children are very lucky to have this facility. - Debbie Mason May 2017
Bridging the GAP - Thursday have made a great difference to me as I was becoming a 'couch cabbage' only going out when absolutely necessary. The children I have met have been pleasant, polite and a joy to be with. I can honestly attribute a growth in my own confidence to this fantastic programme. Sylvia A. Oct 2016
Bridging the GAP is brilliant. Every morning I woke up with a positive attitude about it. I loved that I could meet new people, it was a brilliant idea. Thomas D. Aug 2015
Student Wellbeing - Motivated Minds has worked brilliantly with our students at Deanes School, helping with a range of personal issues from self-esteem to boosting social skills and attendance. Their very 'human' approach to our youngsters has made it feel like they have always worked here! The feedback from students has been so positive! Thanks very much. Mrs L Fanning - The Deanes School 2015

Thank you for your informative session on Let's Talk... Drugs. The feedback from the Cadets was very positive so hopefully they will spread the word and keep themselves out of trouble. Air Cadets 2015
Foundation for the Future - I would like to thank you for the help and support given to my son whilst on your programme. During the time he has spent with you I feel he has gained confidence and learnt new skills. The trip you took him on Tuesday (Stubbers Activity Centre) found him discovering that he could achieve things he'd never thought he could and felt very proud of himself. I am also happy he has made new friends. I feel this course has been very positive for him. J. Stewart. 2015
Foundation for the Future - The team really helped me grow in confidence, for that I will be ever grateful. Jay 2015
Workplace Wellbeing - The staff well-being appraisal was an eye opener, I had thought that what we could do, we were doing, and there was very little else we could do as an employer. I was wrong. Clifford James 2014
I lost my way in life after my husband left me after 20 years. I did not know what to do, Motivated Minds empowered me, and I have now got my journey planned. Thank you! Simone 2013
Just wanted to say thank you for your help and your support in helping me with my job search. I've managed to get myself work @ the ExCel!! Reanna 2011
