The management of mental health in the workplace is a health and safety and equality issue which is covered by legislation. Managers therefore have a legal obligation to both support employees with mental health concerns and to manage stress levels in the workplace. This is often of great concern to managers, as they feel unsure about what exactly they are managing, as well as feeling ill equipped to manage it. However, if an employee raises the issue of stress at work, or has a condition that is exasperated by stress, the employer must respond appropriately.
This one day workshop is aimed at those who manage others and will enable managers to address stress and mental health related concerns in a way that supports the employee to maintain their health and performance within the constraints of organisational demands. It will also educate managers as to when they need to call on the help of other services.
