As well as being able to manage the workload and day-to-day pressures within their teams, managers are well positioned to spot early signs of stress and other mental ill health issues. Thus, when trained appropriately, managers can play a key part in a company's overall mental health support system.
Delivered by one of our psychologists, using practical approaches and real life case studies, our Manager Mental Health Workshop will equip managers with the tools and information they need to empower and inform themselves and their teams around mental health. When management is trained in this way, it creates an openness around mental health within the company, where employees know they can talk about mental health and reach out for help when they need it.
