Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace

Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace

Who should attend

This course is designed to provide key people within organisations with a solid awareness of common mental health issues, and with the knowledge and skills required to support and signpost colleagues experiencing mental health difficulties.

However, the course also acknowledges that maintaining good mental health is vital for everyone and addresses this by providing hints and tips on how to look after ourselves too.

Course Content & Aims

Work related stress and/or depression is the second most commonly reported cause of occupational ill health in the UK. For many of us, work is where we spend much of our lives, where we earn our income and often where we make our friends. Having a fulfilling job, and working in a supportive environment, can be a major contributory factor in maintaining our mental health and general wellbeing.

We all have times when life gets on top of us – sometimes it’s work-related, sometimes it’s something else; health, relationships, circumstances. It is vital that all organisations promote mental health at work for those with existing issues, for those at risk, and for their workforce as a whole.

In 2016 The Mental Health Foundation concluded that:
“Good mental health at work and good management go hand in hand, and there is strong evidence that workplaces with high levels of good mental health are more productive”
