Our Mental Health Awareness Training for line managers is delivered as a one-day course followed by a half-day Refresher and Update Training.   Both are designed to give line managers the tools and confidence to support someone experiencing poor mental health in the workplace:

  • Flexible format for online or face-to-face delivery
  • Quality assured through CPD UK accreditation service (Participants receive a CPD Certification for attending)
  • Tailored content for in-house delivery (one-day course only)
  • The half-day course aims to refresh skills covered in the full day course, but it also includes topics such as the menopause and neurodiversity which are becoming more prevalent in today's workplace

Employers have a responsibility to be proactive in developing positive mental health pathways. This should include training line managers to spot the early warning signs of mental health and provide them with the skills and confidence needed to intervene and have the supportive conversations necessary.  This training aims to give line managers mental health awareness, essential communication skills to handle difficult conversations, and a broader understanding of how to promote a culture of wellbeing.
