Resilience is the difference between surviving and thriving.

Petros COVID-19 Policy for pre-booked or ongoing training and support.

Just like our physical health we all have mental health. Sometime it’s good, sometimes not. When it’s good we feel resilient. Resilient people can respond and adapt to whatever comes their way. Even when emotions are high, they have the skills to keep perspective, think clearly, focus on the main issue and remain optimistic.

 They may wobble but they don’t fall down.

Professor Jo Clarke and her team at Petros, have spent many years working in critical occupations, in some of the toughest workplace environments in the UK. Maximum security prisons, high secure psychiatric hospitals, policing, children in care – the team know first-hand the importance of looking after your mind. Regularly assessing risk in often dangerous situations, operating daily in difficult and unpredictable circumstances, both tactically and strategically, their experience and calibre of practical psychological support is second to none.

Regardless of the workplace, there are few, if any, challenges to mental health and psychological wellbeing that Jo and her team will not have encountered and addressed.
