Mental health awareness is becoming an increasingly important tool for effective management in the workplace. Managers need to be acutely aware of how mental health can impact their staff and how to effectively help employees when problems arise.
Our mental health training for managers involves a one-day course designed to increase knowledge and confidence around mental health. It is an opportunity for delegates to explore and implement practical approaches within the workplace. This course is supported by West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN).
Why should your managers take this course?
- The Mental Health at Work: Managers course provides tangible outcomes and next steps which your organisation can implement immediately.
- Training videos and case studies are tailored towards specific industries so that they are relevant to your organisation.
- The course is non-prescriptive and provides managers with a range of tools to enable them to support their teams effectively whilst adhering to workplace Equality and Health and Safety regulations.
- Return on Investment: For every £1 invested in workplace mental health interventions, organisations see a return on investment of between £1.50 and £9 (Thriving at Work Review).
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Complete Stress Risk Assessments for their teams using the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Management Standards - Organisations with 5 or more employees are required to have risk assessments in place. This also includes stress risk assessments. The purpose of a stress risk assessment is to be proactive in identifying stress triggers within the workplace. The stress risk assessment is a helpful tool to aid early intervention and understand the sources of stress for an individual. You may also find that an individual’s stress is not being caused by the workplace itself but rather, personal worries brought into work.
- Understand how their behaviours may influence/affect team members during periods of stress e.g. organisational change - There will be different personality types within your workplace. This is a good thing but can also cause stress as people may perceive things and behave in different ways. Delegates will have the opportunity to think about different personality types in relation to the following; Time Management, Behaviour towards deadlines, Communication, Reaction to change, Thinking styles, Leadership style and Coping mechanisms.
Participants will also be able to:
- Define mental health and some mental health issues
- Understand factors that affect mental health
- Recognise some of the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health
- Feel confident in starting mental health conversations
- Take steps to improve their own mental well-being
- Identify and implement practical approaches to support colleagues within the workplace
What to expect:
- Learning takes place through a mixture of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. There are plenty of scheduled breaks throughout the day.
Everyone who completes the course will receive:
- A 'Mental Health at Work' training booklet to use for further reference
- A certificate of attendance
