"Confident and engaging training that is insightful and relevant to the specific challenges of the production environment.  Any creative organization looking to further realise a positive mental health culture could benefit from what Team Human delivers"



At Team Human we offer bespoke mental health training services for the creative media sector.

Our aim is to educate your production and management teams in identifying and dealing with common mental health disorders.

Our courses uniquely frame mental health within the context of the creative workplace. In particular, we acknowledge the specific risks and stresses that creative teams can face.

Such as long hours, short contracts, exposure to emotional and physical trauma and much more.

As well as staff, we address how programme makers are increasingly faced with dealing with the general public and often vulnerable and sensitive contributors. We often do not consider their livesafter filming. The sudden loss of support and the subsequent impact of loneliness.

The way we work has evolved but the industry hasn't .

Social media is now key to programme making. However, with it, social media brings cyberbullying, trolling, distressing content and imagery which are not regulated nor monitored.

Therefore, an understanding of how to spot potential mental health issues is crucial.

We have devised a simple care plan, that will allow your team to feel more confident in starting a conversation with those struggling.

As well as information for signposting them to get help.

First aid is mandatory for every workplace, we believe mental health first aid should be no different.

How many you know how to help?


Naomi Harvey HPD SFH, MNCH ( Acc) NCP  (Acc) BA Hons

I have the unique combination of being a TV producer and a fully qualified Psychotherapist a  Mental Health First Aid Instructor and a Screen Skills mentor.

I also write children's books and over 250 schools worldwide have used my lesson plans in primary schools to educate young people in mental health and learning about the neuroscience behind their feelings and emotions. 


After over a decade of working in the TV and Film industry, I have witnessed first hand the increased pressures on employees and the impact of the stress.


From staff jobs being replaced with unpredictable freelance contracts to tightening budgets causing multiple job skills being condensed into single job roles.


The increase in independent production companies has led to HR departments being scrapped. 


There is a lack of proper support for both staff and contributors well-being.

My insight into both the reality of production and the need for mental health wellbeing led me to tailor my training to the creative industry where I see a real need for better staff well-being.

  I established Team Human as a way to remind us all that whatever our 'title' we are ultimately just human. We do the best we can with what we have and I hope to help add mental health awareness to that skill set.
