Spotting the signs of someone who may have mental health problems is often the first step towards helping them. This Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers is designed to make managers or supervisors aware of mental health issues and illnesses inside and outside the workplace. It provides wellbeing-management techniques and aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health at work.
Poor mental health is a very serious issue at work. It can create a negative working environment and can have a huge impact on productivity and the health of employees.
Management teams have a duty to recognise and acknowledge poor mental health and they must know how to deal with a variety of situations relating to the topic.
This Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers raises awareness of mental health and it explains different working practices that management can use to offer support to colleagues. It also provides simple and effective tools that can be used on a daily basis for management to enhance both their own and their employee’s mental health.
It’s not only a moral responsibility to take care of one another at work… it makes financial sense too.
