Mental Health Training for Managers
Our Mental Health Training For Managers is aimed at any manager who needs to be aware, recognise, and understand mental health issues in the workplace and in life. By learning triggers, early signs, and symptoms, attendees will gain positive wellbeing management skills and techniques to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health at work and support their staff and team members.
We know that prevention is better – and more effective – than cure and this is particularly true of mental health. During the course, every attendee will gain the confidence and ability to create a more open and productive workforce and a safer working environment for their teams and staff.
With proven tools and strategies, you’ll be able to challenge and remove the stigma of mental health in the workplace, understand how poor mental health can have a negative impact on business, and how to help safeguard against any potential mental health discrimination. Here’s what else you’ll get from the Mental Health Training for Managers:

- Knowledge and understanding of these conditions and their impact on performance
- Techniques and skills to help staff understand and protect their own mental health

Why is mental health training for managers important?
With no physical signs of distress, pain, or suffering, poor mental health can be classed as an ‘invisible’ illness. As a result, it’s common for both the symptoms and the effects of mental health to go undetected. But ignoring the realities of poor mental health in the workplace can be costly.
Positive mental health training helps managers recognise the importance of these ‘invisible’ issues, as well as recognising early signs and symptoms in themselves and their staff. Together, managers will have the resilience to deal with any larger mental health crisis and have the confidence to step in and speak up to prevent any long term issues.
