Managing Mental Health at Work

Many managers may feel uncomfortable addressing mental health concerns with their employees. 

This workshop will empower managers to recognize and respond to signs of poor mental health in their employees and provide them with the tools to initiate compassionate and supportive conversations. 

By understanding the impact of mental health on employee well-being and performance and by learning best practices for initiating conversations about mental health, managers can create a safe space for employees to share their struggles and seek support.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the impact of mental health issues at work
  • Define a manager’s role in supporting employees who are struggling
  • Review a framework for managing mental health at work

This course is scheduled to run in person. Contact if you are unable to attend the course in person; we will check to see if you can join the in-person course by Zoom.
