Meet Our Founders

Emma Tomes

Our managers are now equipped with practical tools and knowledge to better support our employees with their mental health. Emma delivered the material in an engaging and interesting way.

We strongly recommend The Mental Health People to any organisation who are looking for ways to improve their organisations’ culture around mental health.


Emma delivered wellbeing check-ins as part of my HoLT membership community. The feedback was amazing from the people who attended. Her dedication and generosity giving her time to help others shows the kind of amazing character she has.

She is wise beyond measure in how she approaches often difficult situations. I couldn’t recommend her services highly enough. You’re in extremely safe hands with Emma.

Singlehandedly the most profound and impactful training course I have ever taken; excellently facilitated by Emma Tomes.

My biggest lesson is that the fear of talking to someone who needs support is not as great as the fear of walking past and missing an opportunity to help.

The Suicide First Aid Training has dramatically improved our confidence and knowledge when talking about suicide.

We are now much better prepared to navigate these tricky but important conversations, and have already been able to use our new skills to support a team member who was struggling with suicidal thoughts.


I’ve been lucky enough to be supported by Emma through my MHFA training. I’m grateful for the space Emma held for each of us to talk, question, discuss and practice openly without judgement.

Despite being online, she managed to create an environment that felt comfortable, even if many of us didn’t know each other personally.


Emma and the team have helped us develop a support programme for our mental health first aiders.

We are now able to be rest assured that our mental health first aiders are keeping their knowledge and confidence topped up.
