Our Past Partnerships
ROUTE TO BE
Virtual session on the topic of protecting mental wellbeing during social distancing.
Testimonial: "Route to Be had the pleasure of working with Breaking Mad in delivering a virtual session on the topic of protecting your mental well-being during social distancing. The ladies were fantastic to say the least, they were very professional in all our engagements and when it came to the event they delivered beyond our expectations.
They took the time to get to know as many of the participants reiterating that it was a safe space, this was a really nice touch because it allowed participants to open up more and discuss some of the issues that they had been facing as a result of the pandemic. They really know their stuff and what they are talking about.
They shared some real practical nuggets that I have started practising in my day-to-day that help me protect my peace. I know most of the participants also felt the same way because immediately after the event, we received an influx of positive feedback from those who attended the session".
THE GLOW DOCS

BLACK & MINORITY ETHNICS IN PSYCHIATRY & PSYCHOLOGY NETWORK
Reflective session on managing anxiety for prospective DClinPsych interviewees.
Testimonial :"The Breaking Mad Team helped to facilitate one of our reflective practice sessions for prospective DClinPsych interviewees. Working with the BMT therapists was efficient, easy and an enjoyable experience. They were able to follow the brief given and utilise the resources provided by the network. The session helped to support and encourage attendees to share their stories and demonstrate competencies needed when applying to the doctorate in clinical psychology."

UNIVERSITY OF HERTFORDSHIRE
BLACK STUDENT & STAFF MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP
TESTIMONIAL - "Breaking Mad delivered a workshop to students and staff at the University of Hertfordshire as part of our Black History Month programme. It was amazing to meet such a vibrant, passionate and brilliant group of people who clearly wish to support and champion Black people’s mental health in the UK. The workshop was informative, relatable and powerful, providing us with tips and legitimising barriers we may face when accessing support.
It was also great to hear stories of Black men who have openly dealt with mental health concerns and are actively working to look after their minds. Thank you so much for delivering this workshop!"– Shanara Hibbert, National Athlete, Student Success Officer (Equality) and Sustainability and Workplace Wellbeing Engagement Officer at the University of Hertfordshire
