Community Workshops

Want to improve the mental wealth of your staff or students?

Did you know we also offer a free service to Schools, Colleges and Businesses in the local areas.

Recent figures tell us that 40 million working days were lost last year through poor mental health and the combined effect of all of this currently costs the UK economy £34.9bn per year.  

That is why we offer a number of workshops, all of which can be adapted to meet the needs of your audience. These have proved to be very successful, particularly in businesses and local colleges across Hampshire. Following a workshop, anyone who thinks they might need further support will have the opportunity to speak confidentially to a member of our staff and may be offered additional treatment. We can offer workshops on

  • Identifying staff stress
  • Relaxation and mindfulness  
  • Exam stress 
  • Wellbeing at work
  • Wellbeing and relaxation

If you would like more information on the different types of workshops we offer, or would like italk to come and speak to your staff or students please email: info@italk.org.uk

I can't sleep

Can’t sleep? You are not alone.

Many people suffer from insomnia; trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. As a result, they may get too little sleep or have poor-quality sleep which means that they do not feel refreshed when they wake up. Insomnia can be triggered by situations such as; stress at work, family pressures, noisy neighbours, illness, a traumatic event etc. Find out more


Groups at Step 3

The majority of our groups are offered at Step 2, however we do also have a range of groups for patients who are accessing the Step 3 part of our service. These groups are facilitated by our High Intensity Therapists. Your therapists will discuss with you if a Step 3 group is the best option for your recovery.

“I thought the group was really good. I didn’t realise how much control I had over my own mental health until and I have learnt lots of techniques to take away. Since attending the group, my panic attacks have stopped, my overall mood is much better and I am getting on really well with my family.”
