Advisory

Services

Organisations are learning that well-being is good for business and that healthy people are happier, more engaged, more productive and less likely to leave.

Mental health training for managers and employees to provide and enhance skills is a key component for creating a safe, healthy workplace where the mental and physical health of employees are valued equally.

Training gives people tools to support their own mental health and that of their colleagues and can help encourage people to seek and access support.

However, training is just one part of the puzzle as each organisation’s culture is different. For increased effectiveness and to have a sustainable impact, there needs to be a wider organisational strategic approach to mental health and well-being.

Most organisations are implementing mental health training without an understanding of the leading guidance and recommendations on why this is needed and how to get the best results and without a wider strategy addressing this.

That is why you also need to develop and enhance an overall strategy to help your employees thrive and in turn, your business succeed.
If you are reading this you are already thinking about how to improve the mental health of your organisation.

We are here to guide and support you on your journey.

  • Understand why mental health is being addressed by employers.
  • Know when and why employers should act – understanding the multiple steps to be taken to properly address mental health in the workplace.
  • Engage with an Organisation you trust.
  • Understand the different training that is available and what training to implement and why?
  • Have a plan to address what happens after staff training has been completed?
