Hope Health and Dudes & Dogs launches partnership to support workplace mental health awareness

Hope Health has announced a partnership with men's mental health community interest group, Dudes & Dogs.

The partnership will see both teams working together to support mental health awareness in workplaces and communities nationwide.

While the core mission at Dudes & Dogs is focused on men, like Hope Health - which provides mental health first aid training and wellbeing services - it believes that mental health is important to all.

Hope Health founder Nicole O’Callaghan said: “I’m so excited to support and work alongside the dog dudes. Having supported them recently with their Mental Health First Aid qualifications, I know first-hand the passion and hard work that each of them puts into their voluntary-led initiative.”

The partnership’s first focus is to create new training workshops and a consultancy service for organisations to train and enable them to support their employees' wellbeing needs. Uniquely tailored training programmes will be built to assist individual organisations to raise awareness and engage in a meaningful way with their people on all levels.

Dudes & Dogs founder Rob Osman said: “Here at Dudes our vision is for men in every corner of the world to know it's not just okay to talk, it's vitally important.

"We also understand that mental health isn't just a Dude thing, and through collaboration rather than competition we are able to help more people manage their mental health.

"By collaborating with Nicole and her team at Hope Health, not only have we been able to increase the training and support we offer our 'Dog Dudes', but it has allowed us to accelerate and grow the support we can offer to businesses and organisations. We can't wait to see where this partnership leads.”
