Managing Mental Health at Work


Managing Mental Health at Work

See our online booking site for specific course information.

Who is this course for?

People with an interest in mental health at work including:

  • managers
  • trade union representatives
  • HR professionals
  • and Mental Health Champions


"Mental health issues have a significant impact on employee well-being and are a major cause of long-term absence from work. Employers are encouraged to promote good mental health and provide support for employees who are experiencing mental ill health including anxiety or depression."

"Increasing awareness of mental health issues across the workforce can help break the silence and start to build a more open and inclusive culture. Managers need to feel confident and competent to have conversations with staff about sensitive issues like mental health and signpost to specialist sources of support if necessary. HR should ensure that employees know how to access the support provided by the organisation even if they don't wish to disclose an issue to their manager."
