Training your staff on mental health is important to promote mental wellbeing, raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
It’s critical that all of your line managers feel confident having a conversation about mental health with their line reports. Increasing their capability to spot signs and symptoms in their team, and feel confident in discussing this with those who are struggling will help stop problems before they become more challenging.
We have put together a document that aims to help you create a business case to take to your senior leaders/budget holders to sign off on delivering mental health training for your employees which can be accessed here.
Mind and Rethink Mental Illness have fantastic training courses.
To help you create workplaces that are conducive to mental health and wellbeing, where stigma and discrimination around mental health has no place, we have filmed four workshops which can be viewed online.
