Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 5 sections
- 1 Mental Health Awareness
- 2 Mental Health Problems
- 3 Wellbeing Toolkit
- 4 Tips for Management
- 5 External Help
This section provides a complete overview of mental health and raises awareness about removing stigma, the importance of good mental health and the common triggers of poor mental health. It also provides an insight into what can influence negative thought patterns, which are proven to impact productivity levels.
How do you go about managing poor mental health? Particularly things like loneliness, stress, depression or anxiety? We give you guidance and practical tips on how to do so, and we look at changes in staff behaviour and what to watch out for. Section 2 also has additional resources that provide handy overviews of other mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder and personality disorders.
Here is your very own Wellbeing Toolkit that can be used to manage day-to-day mental health! It offers a variety of mini exercises, insights, practical strategies and some food for thought - so you can use whatever suits you!
This section looks deeper into how poor mental health can impact businesses and the importance of providing good working conditions. We look at the importance of having a 'mental health at work plan', making workplace adjustments when needed and we also show you how to effectively monitor staff wellbeing at regular intervals.
In this final section, we've created a 'hub' for external mental health management. It offers great starting points for improving wellbeing, information on external books, websites, apps and helplines.
About this course
Poor mental health is a very serious issue at work. It can have a huge impact on productivity and it can create a negative working environment. Management teams have a duty to recognise and acknowledge poor mental health and they must know how to deal with a variety of situations relating to the topic.
This Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers raises awareness of mental health and it explains different working practices that management can use to offer support to colleagues. It also provides simple and effective tools that can be used on a daily basis for management to enhance both their own and their employee's mental health.
It's not only a moral responsibility to take care of one another at work... it makes financial sense too. For every £1 that an organisation invests in improving the mental health of their staff, they see an average of a £5 return!

Whilst watching, I could think of several scenarios including myself where I think being aware of mental health could have helped a situation and its outcome.
Really informative and useful
Resources attached to training were really helpful and overall content of the session was great.
Clear and to do point training.
good use of time, very informative
This user gave this course a rating of 5/5 stars
it's useful even for me personally
Depression - very interesting and useful as managers are also just humans and can feel it.
A few useful extras
Much is just part of good and sympathetic management and self awareness
Very informative with content required
The course allows time for reflection and pausing which is good and not too long on information but the right point of what is required to learn.
I found the course quite intuitive!
I expected the Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers Course to be more 'serious' and a bit more difficult especially as I took the course after a busy day. I found myself relaxed and practising being positive and enjoyed the course to the end. I also looked forward to taking the test but was not expecting to complete it very quickly with a 100% score first time! I will definitely be recommending it to colleagues at work if they haven't already taken the course. Thank you; very much appreciated.
Why is this training important?
According to the HASAWA 1974, employers must “so far as is reasonably practicable” protect the health & safety of their employees by removing or reducing risks in the workplace.
If someone has a mental illness for over 12 months and they can show that it’s causing them disadvantages at work, it can be classed as a disability. This means the employee is protected by the Equality Act if colleagues or their employer were to discriminate against them because of their mental illness. Employers are legally required to make reasonable adjustments to support employees with mental illnesses at work. However, even if it’s not classed as a disability, management should always offer all the support they can.
