Why this training is crucial for your organisation :

    While companies are realising the importance of mental health, there is a lack of awareness of how to address this challenging issue in a controlled, sensitive and legally compliant way. This means many companies are holding back from getting started, reaching for ‘quick-fix’ solutions, and leaving themselves open to productivity and engagement issues, higher costs and even legal challenges rather than creating a viable strategy for mental health and wellbeing.

    As part of the course, you will experience the CPD accredited workshop Managing and Promoting Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing and will be equipped with both a preventative and first response model and a step-by-step framework for implementing it into your workplace. This allows you to gain insight into mental health and wellbeing, which we all have, as well as mental health conditions, and how they might manifest themselves in the workplace and home. You will receive a comprehensive i-act manual that contains over 50 tools and refers to over 95 agencies, additional tools and access to online resources for you and your workplace.
