Research reports

    Our research, impact evaluations and company reports

We conduct our own research and impact evaluations, and work with clients and partners to assess the outcomes and value of our interventions.

Many of the reports into our workplace programmes are confidential, but we have collected anonymous feedback and occasionally work with our clients to publish our successes. The reports into our charitable programmes are made available to the public as long as participant confidentiality permits us to do so. We’ve shared everything we can here, so you can see for yourself how our programmes can help.

If you’re interested in working with us to see if our services can help people you care about, get in touch now.

Ten years of Mindapples

Mindapples was founded back in 2008, shortly before the Five Ways to Wellbeing was launched, and the Time to Change campaign began. We were at the launch of Action for Happiness, and Andy Puddicombe from Headspace ran a meditation workshop at our first major public event in 2010. We were part of the first wave of campaigns and interventions to take mental health out of the shadows and make it a mainstream goal for society and organisations.

In 2018, we looked back at ten years of Mindapples, and summarised our commercial and charitable highlights in two commemorative reports:

Take a look at the highlights from the first ten years of our charitable campaign here:

And here are the best bits of ten years of workplace training, innovation and e-learning programmes:

Healthy minds, healthy business: 10 years of Mindapples in the workplace

We’re proud of our track record of inspired audiences and happy customers. We look forward to working with you to make the next decade of Mindapples even more fruitful.

Evaluations of our training

Learning about our minds helps us to manage our health, improve our wellbeing, and cope better with stress.

In two separate controlled trials of our training programmes and one follow-up evaluation, the University of York found statistically significant increases in wellbeing, coping with stress and understanding of the mind, even months after our training had finished.
