Overview

Good employee mental health is the foundation of a successful and productive team.

However, despite good progress in recent years, far too many employees feel unable to discuss their mental health with their managers.  They fear being judged, misunderstood or worse, and many try to hide their illness.

Most managers sincerely want to help and support their staff, but they don't know how to recognise the signs of poor mental health at work or they are afraid of saying the wrong thing, and they don't know how to help their people access the practical support available. 

As a manager you don't need to have all the answers or fix the problem.

This highly interactive, practical course will equip managers with the basic information they need as well as a framework for understanding the most common mental health issues and how they might show at work.  It will also give managers crystal clear guidance on what their role is, and the limits on what they can do, so managers will feel confident to deal with the issues they can help with, and knowledgeable enough to find more expert help when that's required.

What you'll learn

  • Basic understanding of the most common mental illnesses including depression and anxiety
  • Understand what poor mental health looks like at work, how recognise the signs and when to get involved
  • What is the role of the manager in supporting someone with a mental health problem
  • Understand why the fear of being judged is so important to people experiencing mental health problems
  • How to listen and have a conversation that is open and supportive
  • What to do in a crisis
  • How to make simple, reasonable adjustments that will help mental health sufferers remain productive
  • Steps you can take to make your organisation more mental health aware and friendly

Who is it for?

Any manager who would like to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to address mental health problems at work.
