Mental health in the workplace: skills for managers - split day digital event

Practical skills to enable managers to effectively manage mental health in the workplace

According to the Mental Health Foundation, one in six employees experience mental ill health each year. A study by Business in the Community found that only 14% of those that had experienced work-related poor mental health had spoken to their managers.

Whilst the reasons behind mental ill health are not always work related, managers need to know how to address it. They may fear saying the wrong thing or making matters worse but early intervention is key. It provides opportunity for the manager and the individual to discuss the support they might need to stay in work, benefiting the individual, the team and the organisation. 

Delegates attending this event will gain an understanding of the different mental ill health conditions and learn how to effectively engage with staff at an early stage. The event will also cover the Acas framework for positive mental health; a holistic model which describes the key responsibilities of all parties contributing to healthy and productive workplaces.
