Welcome to The Cairn of Mental Health.

We design and deliver mental health education and training programmes for a wide variety of audiences, including psychologists, nurses, GPs, social and community workers and students as well as employers of all sizes, sectors and backgrounds.

Our work for clients is underpinned by two strengths:

  • A tailored approach: We research and design teaching and training materials that are tailored to your specific needs – for a price and specification uniquely designed to both meet your individual requirements and to deliver a product that will satisfy and meet every expectation that you have in this field.
  • An integrated approach: Michel Syrett and Suzy Johnston combine direct experience of mental illness with extensive track records as researchers, authors, facilitators and lecturers on mental health issues. The materials we design for clients combine a personal perspective of the challenges faced by people with mental health problems with case-studies, statistics and examples based on rigorous research and work based experience.
