This supporting mental health in the workplace course will help managers recognise when a staff member may need support and what they can do to help them. Managers will gain an understanding of common mental health illnesses and be given the confidence to promote mental health awareness. The course also gives managers the ability to spot signs of mental ill health and to develop the skills to support positive wellbeing for themselves and others. We also run a half day live session Mental Health Awareness Course.
