Advanced Mental Health Training for Leaders and Managers to be able to learn and identify, manage and protect the mental health and wellbeing of their employees.

Synopsis: Mental Health Conversations for Managers is an advanced online course designed to help Leaders, Managers and Supervisors gain an understanding of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, how to identify and respond if a team member is not coping, and how to handle the more complex scenarios managers face in their role, such as how to handle performance management of a hybrid and neurodiverse workforce in the context of mental ill health, flexible arrangements, privacy and safety issues. It also teaches managers how to enhance the resilience of their teams and prevent mental health issues from developing or escalating.

Description: To face the coming challenges in the workplace and the world at large, employees must respond to the challenges presented with a stable, grounded, and clear presence of mind.

It is essential for the sustainability and future of the business, and equally for the health and wellbeing of each employee, that organizations align the very best mental health knowledge and most powerful and positive paradigms so that staff can proactively deal with whatever occurs in the coming weeks and months.

That’s why it’s so important that managers gain an understanding of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, know how to support the resilience of their teams, and know how to respond if a team member is not coping. The Mental Health Conversations equips managers to do just that.

Learning Outcomes:

In this online course managers will learn:

  • How to Identify signs and symptoms of stress and mental health vulnerability
  • How to conduct a conversation with clear boundaries, acknowledging managers are not counselors
  • How and where to access resources and connect people with appropriate support services
  • Practical strategies, tools, and techniques to improve resilience
  • How to undertake reasonable adjustments to work schedules and practices, including our eventual return to work
