Mental Health for Leaders

Mental Health for Leaders

4 hours

When unmanaged, mental health can cause disruptions to the workplace ranging from absenteeism, poorer work performance and reduced job satisfaction to serious accidents and life-endangering mistakes. Reducing the stigma of asking for help and talking about mental health is the first step towards prevention. However, a workplace where leaders are educated about mental health, what it can look like and how it can be helped, is a safer workplace, and ultimately a more productive workplace. Mental health training is not just about ensuring employee safety, but also has cost-saving benefits to the company that utilises it.
This is a training program to educate employees about mental health, how to approach talking about it in the workplace and how to recognise symptoms/presentation of mental health disorders in the workplace. We will also discuss the risk factors for suicide and intervention strategies for someone who might be at risk.
