Training for Managers

Training for Managers

Managers have a critical part to play in supporting staff to stay well at work. Providing training which equips managers with the skills they need to do this should be top of the learning and development agenda.

CPD Accredited Managing Mental Health Training has been developed from years of HR and L&D experience. Feedback from associated staff and managers tells us that the best training for managers is short and sweet. Long enough to be of lasting impact and inclusive of tools which can be used and shared.

Managing Mental Health is delivered over a 3-hour session with around 1 hour of pre-course learning OR a 4-hour session with no pre-course learning expectation.  The course builds skills in your managers to feel confident to have conversations about mental health and wellbeing as part of their everyday duties.

Learners will receive a digital Line Manager’s Resource and workbook.
