Mental Health Awareness in the Work Environment

Please Note: This course will be delivered to booked delegates remotely via Zoom 10am to 1pm on 20 October with a second Zoom session on 10am to 1pm on 27 October.

Description

This training course delivered by Liz Jones as two half-day Zoom sessions will benefit the learner by raising awareness of common mental health problems related to work such as depression, stress and anxiety, eating disorders, self-harming and suicide. This is for people (new or experienced) who are lone or remote workers and may spot key points to identify issues when they meet or come into contact their colleagues or team members.

The training includes how to listen to others and provide advice on where to signpost to expert support to assist them in difficult times. It will potentially assist with reducing stigma associated with mental health problems in the workplace.

The course will incorporate group work and covers how to actively listen and identify things to identify individuals to help them make their own decisions on how to best provide support from the organisation to assistance in difficult times. The learners will have an understanding of laws that apply to the workplace associated with mental health and in addition know how to assist with making the work environment beneficial to both employer and employee.

The high level of mental health issues resulting from lone working at unsociable hours with long periods of working away from home can make the ecology staff particularly vulnerable but it is also difficult to identify so is particularly necessary that when they are in contact with team leaders and managers they can spot issues at the earliest opportunity.
