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 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.
