Managing Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental health and wellbeing has long been an overlooked part of the workplace, but with so many days being lost to poor mental health (or ‘stress’ as it usually gets labelled) more employers are now looking to see what support they can provide.  However, employers are often not sure what workplace wellbeing is and what they can do to train staff to provide support.

This course is aimed at all levels of management from CEOs to Line Managers and is also of value to HR staff. The aim of the course is to give a general understanding of mental health and mental illness and to equip managers with skills to support staff plus a review of current legislation.

Course content:

  • Describe what we mean by good and poor mental health 
  • Recognise the common signs of stress and poor mental health at work 
  • Identify key elements of good practice when managing mental health in the workplace 
  • Describe the role of the manager in managing staff’s mental health and wellbeing 
  • Describe practical management skills for managing mental health in the workplace 

The course is interactive and will be delivered as a combination of slides and a variety of group activities.
