Why is mental health and wellbeing 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.

Why choose us?

With both James and Priscilla having personal experience in dealing with mental health issues, they know first-hand the effects poor mental health can have on everyone. This simple fact is what makes their insights and advice so valuable and is what separates them from many other trainers.

But they also understand different businesses have different training needs. That’s why the Mental Health and Wellbeing Training for Managers course isn’t designed to be a ‘one size fits all’ course. We can be flexible and centre the course around you, adapting any of our course content so it’s relatable and relevant to your needs.
