Managing Employee Mental Health
Event Venue and Description – Webinar
This 3-hour digital event is based on Acas popular face to face training. It has been tailored specifically to help you support employee mental health issues during these unprecedented times.
Through guidance, discussion and activities, this interactive event will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to confidently manage good employee mental health, both remotely and in the workplace.
The coronavirus pandemic is affecting all our lives and has presented extra challenges for those with existing mental health problems.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, one in six employees experience mental ill health each year.
The Centre for Mental Health has estimated that in the UK, at least half a million more people will experience a mental health difficulty over the next year. Research recently conducted by Bupa UK has confirmed an increase in mental health issues, with people more reluctant to seek help during the current climate.
Managers may have an understanding of mental health, yet may be hesitant to address it, through fear of saying the wrong thing or making matters worse. However, early intervention is crucial in ensuring the individual can access the support they need to keep themselves at work and working well. This not only benefits the individual, but their team and the business.
Delivered via Zoom, this event will outline the different mental ill health conditions and help you recognise the signs and symptoms. You will also learn how to engage effectively with employees at an early stage, have constructive conversations and gain an awareness of the range of practical support available for individuals.
