Mental Health Awareness for Managers

Enable your managers to identify and work with mental health issues in their staff

Mental health issues can affect workplace performance, absenteeism and productivity. If managers are apprehensive about approaching an employee with a mental health concern, this can lead to problems within the team – including decreased morale and lack of cooperation.

This program is specifically designed to help managers become more sensitive to employee behavioural changes that may stem from mental health issues so that they can take appropriate actions. They will learn a framework for approaching employees to offer help before the situation becomes more serious.
