Why is mental health and wellbeing 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.
