Supervising Mental Health at Work E-Learning

Course Description
Our course will look at supervising stress and mental health at work and show you how to create a good mental health culture in your workplace. The course starts by examining the negative effects of poor mental health on individuals and also considers the many benefits of mental health interventions by employers.

You will learn the six main areas that can lead to work-related stress and discover how to recognise when individuals and teams are under stress. Companies are legally bound to assess health risks from stress at work, and we’ll show how to assess those risks, along with how to recruit, and train Mental Health First Aiders. You will learn how to create a good mental health culture within your workplace and how to conduct a Mental Health Audit and produce a Mental Health Policy and Action Plan. Finally, you’ll learn a number of proven ways to promote a good mental health culture within your
workplace.
