Mental Health Training for Employees
Our Mental Health Training For Employees course is an inclusive and interactive workshop for all members of staff. Discussing many areas of general mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, including anxiety, stress, and depression, attendees will learn how to better understand mental health issues to help recognise and manage symptoms in themselves and their colleagues.
Equipped with the right knowledge, facts, and stats, attendees can adopt positive mental health and wellbeing in the workplace for themselves and others. They’ll gain the skills and confidence to challenge the stigma of mental health and create a safer working environment for everyone where positive mental health can be encouraged and every employee can feel better supported.
Armed with the right tools, staff will be able to overcome any stigma that surrounds mental health in the workplace. At the same time, they’ll understand how poor mental health can negatively impact their work and productivity, as well as their colleagues, and how they can challenge mental health discrimination. Mental Health Training for Employees will also give staff:
- Direct insights into stress, anxiety, and depression and other common mental health disorders

- Proven techniques to help understand and protect their own and colleagues mental health

Why is mental health training for employees important?
There may be no obvious signs of physical distress, pain, or suffering, and because of that, poor mental health might be viewed as an ‘invisible’ illness. In those circumstances, it’s common for both mental health symptoms and their negative effects to go unnoticed. But just because you can’t see them, the realities of poor mental health in the workplace are there and shouldn’t be ignored.
Positive training and education in mental health will help employees recognise these ‘hidden’ issues, as well as being aware and spotting any early signs and symptoms in themselves and their colleagues. Effective training will give employees the expertise and confidence to deal with a mental health crisis and be able to step in or speak out to prevent issues from becoming a long term problem.
