Course description

Mental Health Awareness For Managers

According to the HSE, in 2019/20 there were an estimated 828,000 workers affected by work-related stress, depression or anxiety. This represents 2,440 per 100,000 workers and results in an estimated 17.9 million working days lost.

It is a fact that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem at any one time, including in the workplace. From a Management perspective, knowing how to recognise the signs and understanding how to respond to an employee who is experiencing difficulties with their mental health is an essential step towards that individual getting the help and support they need.

Organisations are required by law to promote and protect the mental well-being of their workforce. This training course is suitable for managers who need an understanding of what mental health is and need help in recognising and identifying the numerous ways in which it can present itself in the workplace. The course provides an overview of the common mental health problems people may experience, the symptoms and effects of them and what you should do to support any employees who are struggling. The course will provide helpful insights into the many ways you can create a positive mental health culture in your workplace and make some simple changes to ensure you are able to give your employees the support they require.
