eLearning news & guides
The Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers course is broken down into 5 sections.
1) Mental Health Awareness
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.
2) Mental Health Problems
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.
3) Wellbeing Toolkit
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!
4) Tips for Management
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.
5) External Help
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.

This course has given me some useful tips to start practising more positive thought processes, taking the time to breath properly and encourage me to drink more water and look after myself.
clear teaching but difficult to put in to practice when working for CVS. Time pressures do not usually allow time for chat. Does not give any instruction on how to cope with mad employees!!!
Although a lot of it is common sense there was a lot of useful facts in this presentation.
As someone who has experienced MH issues in the past (work related stress), I found this a good course to remind me what we all need to be doing to help ourselves and our colleagues.
Some very interesting ideas and useful tips, particularly for recognizing some of the early signs of mental health issues. Definitely some ideas which can be easily put into practice and incorporated into both the work and home environment.

Whilst there are many good messages within this video I found the use of small demon style characters to be somewhat patronising to those who suffer from mental health issues. I suggest researching the World Health Organisations video of the black dog to illustrate how depression works for example, my experience with depression and those who have suffered from it, is that the black dog analogy is as good as anybody has ever come to explaining the illness.
