Overview

There tends to be great variation in the level of awareness and understanding of mental health within workplaces. HR and Managers need to be able to recognise and understand some of the most common signs and symptoms of mental health conditions within the workplace to enable compliance of the 2010 Equalities Act and to respond with understanding when a colleague discloses this health condition.

A workplace that is positive about mental health supports the wellbeing of all employees, as well as encouraging openness about mental health problems. Many organisations lose the skills and experience of capable employees who feel they have no choice but to choose between a deterioration of their mental health or leaving their employment.

This course raises awareness of the most common mental health disorders, enabling delegates to recognise some of the associated signs, symptoms and behaviours and learn the most effective ways of managing a member of staff with either a suspected or diagnosed mental health condition. This course clarifies the concept of stress and how it impacts on mental health.
