What is the Manager Mental Health Workshop?
Building on the Employee-Focused Workshop, this workshop provides knowledge and skills around general mental health, but also includes modules designed to train managers in monitoring and safeguarding their team members’ mental health.
As well as being able to manage the workloads and day-to-day pressures within their teams, managers will become well positioned to spot early signs of stress, anxiety or other mental ill health issues. This workshop will give your management a clear understanding of how to identify these common issues and their symptoms, as well as how best to support employees who are experiencing difficulties.
Who should attend?
The Manager Mental Health Workshop should be made available to all managers responsible for leading a team of employees, as they are in an excellent position to create healthy work environments, and spot and support anyone who might be struggling. The workshop provides information which allows your managers to lead appropriately around mental health – not to become mental health professionals, but to be informed to support their people.
