We are Hummingbird Health (WAHBH) has been born out of a desire to help make a difference to people and how they feel about their mental health. Together we can work towards removing the fear of prejudice and stigma.
I have seen first hand and experienced myself, the challenges faced by those affected by mental illness and how it can seem impossible to speak out in today's fast-paced result-driven environment.
WAHBH has been created to help educate as many people as possible in Mental Health First Aid. This includes the optimism and relief that can come from speaking out when you don’t feel right and encouraging your employees, employers and friends to make positive mental health decisions.
The ‘We are Hummingbird’ group aims to create a global community where people can achieve the strength and confidence they need to communicate openly. Doing this changed my life – it allowed me to have the strength to follow my passion, start my own company and help others.
I hope that this community becomes one that you and your staff can relate to, believe in and feel part of.

Ian is a well-known and respected Mental Health Professional.
In addition to delivering Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Prevention training, Ian writes, develops and instructs his own bespoke Mental Health Awareness Programmes. Bringing information to life is key for Ian, so not all his training and awareness work is carried out in the classroom, being creative is what he does best and it has led to creations such as a six-part tv series called “A Mental Session” and his own Podcast named “Humming Punks”. As well as educating, Ian is regularly asked to speak at corporate events, attend panel discussions, support other mental health and wellbeing organisations with content and has had numerous radio and TV Interviews.
Ian has worked with individuals from all walks of life including the industrial and construction sectors, Royal Navy recruits, private banking, professional musicians and entertainers. He believes his key to success is his ability to engage with clients and find ways to bring Mental Health issues to the fore.
