Who is it for

Managers play an important role in supporting the mental health of employees. However, knowing how to provide the best possible support can be challenging, especially as managers are often busy balancing a range of other responsibilities.

This interactive course has been designed specifically for managers and those working towards management responsibilities to provide support and guidance. It will help develop a core understanding of mental health before exploring a range of strategies to provide effective mental health support within a team.

As part of the HR team, I took away a lot of really helpful tips that we can implement across the firm, particularly signposting and information. The trainer also makes you feel more at ease about having conversations with people, about not worrying that you’re saying the wrong thing and the importance of simply listening and signposting.

We’re a local, independent charity and we’re here to support you.

Any profit we make from training is invested back into our charity to enable us to continue to provide and develop our services for young people and adults at a time when they are more needed than ever. Find out more about the work we do here.
