We don’t currently have any open courses available for the Managing Mental Health for Line Managers course. Please check back for future for dates, or in the meantime take a look at the same course delivered on-site at your workplace – click here for more information.
The session opens with an exploration of attitudes towards mental health stigma, using high-profile public figures who have shared their own mental health struggles.
Managers learn to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental illness and to understand that we all find ourselves on a continuum of mental wellness to mental ill health. Finally managers will learn appropriate intervention approaches.
The second session examines resilience as a mediator in the relationship between stress and mental health.
Using the Health and Safety Executive’s Management Standards’ managers will assess workplace stress by building up a picture of the demands, control, support, relationship, roles and change in their own working environments. They will then formulate an action plan to pro-actively improve mental wellbeing in their specific workplace.
The third session uses effective relationship management and emotional intelligence to embed learning.
Relationship management is a key tool for leadership and management, whilst understanding and improving the use of emotional intelligence in the workplace deliver equally powerful outcomes – building bonds, conflict management, collaborating, influencing and motivation.
