Good employee mental health is the foundation of a successful and productive team.
There is also a legal requirement from the HSE to ensure psychological wellbeing is protected in the workplace.
However, despite positive 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 are afraid of saying the wrong thing. This is compounded by the fact that many managers don't know how to help their team access available support, and do not understand their own limitations and boundaries.
This highly interactive and practical training course will equip managers with the basic mental health awareness information. You’ll be provided with a framework for understanding the most common mental health issues and how they might surface in the workplace.
It will also give you crystal clear guidance on what your role is - and the limits of what you can do - so you feel confident to manage and support the mental health issues you can assist with - and are knowledgeable enough to find expert help when it’s required
