Line Managers are ideally positioned to make the biggest difference to mental health in the workplace, but few know what to say or do.

Employers have a responsibility to be proactive in developing positive mental health pathways. This should include training line managers to spot the early warning signs of mental health and provide them with the skills and confidence needed to intervene and have the supportive conversations necessary.

Training is part of the answer but should support an organisational culture of employee wellbeing.

This training aims to give line managers mental health awareness, essential communication skills to handle difficult conversations, and a broader understanding of how to promote a culture of wellbeing.

What is the format of the day?

  • This is an online course delivered via Zoom platform. Becky will facilitate the first part day 1 and Sharon will facilitate day 2.
  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities
  • We limit numbers to 12 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn and we can see everyone on the Zoom platform.
