Mental Health Awareness for Managers and Leaders
Provides an understanding of common mental health illnesses and teaches how to support team members and enhance personal wellbeing.
Mental illness is taking centre stage in the workplace not only because of its profound personal costs, but also because of the impact on the business bottom line of absenteeism, presentee-ism and staff turnover. Managers and leaders are recognised as playing a pivotal role here.
This two part Mental Health Awareness workshop aims to promote a better understanding of mental health and illness, addressing how to recognise and appropriately support those who may be struggling, prevent problems and distress arising in the first place and build Sustainable Workplace Prosperity (SWP).
The workshop is created and led by Dr. Barbara Mariposa, a medical doctor with a background in psychiatry, psychology and public health.
Conducted over two sessions, participants will leave with:
Increased knowledge about common mental health conditions that arise in the workplace
Increased competence and confidence to address matters relating to mental health and illness, including how to have conversations successfully with people who may be unwell or returning to work
An understanding of stigma and the importance of promoting a zero tolerance of stigma of all kinds
How to support their own and others’ mental and emotional wellbeing, and know where the boundaries of their work role lie.
