Course Description

Mental health essentials for the workplace introduces managers to their responsibilities around mental health to enable them to connect with and manage team members who may be experiencing a mental health or wellbeing issue whilst at work, off sick or returning to work.

Based on the latest research[1] we’ll go back to basics to understand what we even mean by ‘mental health’ and the role managers play to create a psychologically safe workplace. We share tools to help managers and their teams look after their wellbeing and build resilience and promote the valuable message of self-care.

We use a framework for safe conversations, and share resources for further learning so participants can build their confidence beyond the learning.
