Mental Health Awareness Training Recommended For All Managers
Recent guidance from Public Health England (PHE) and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), has recommended that all managers are given skills to support employees with mental health issues.
In addition to helping those they manage, it is considered this would benefit managers' own mental wellbeing by feeling skilled to perform their line management role.
NICE and PHE believe this is good practice across all industries and all sizes of organisation. It being a practical step which employers can introduce quickly and without an unduly heavy investment.
If you're considering implementing this recommendation, we can deliver Mental Health Awareness training sessions for both managers and/or all employees.
