What Coaches Should Know About Mental Health: A Discussion With Pete White

21st May 2020

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, and so we thought what better time to hold a conversation around the topic of mental health and how it can come into the coaching space.

In this conversation Robert Stephenson is joined by Animas graduate, and Mental Health Consultant Pete White to explore how mental health issues show up in the coaching space and shares some thoughts around how coaches might help their clients around it without tackling the issue directly.

Pete shares his journey from the ‘bottom of the barrel’ to his role as a Mental Health Consultant helping organisations to better support their employees with their mental health. Pete touches on the stigma around mental health, the importance of self-awareness and recognition as well as how pivotal support for those struggling with issues around their mental health.

Pete also shares his 3-tier care plan system that can help to abate mental health triggers and some tips and resources to that you can use in the coaching space.

We hope that you enjoy this conversation!

Find out more about Pete and his work.
