Supporting Staff with Mental Health Problems Training

12 Mar 2014

On 11 April 2014 (9.30am - 4.30pm)

You probably manage someone with a mental health problem.

Anyone can experience periods of mental health difficulties, and for some people these will be more serious and longer term in impact than for others.

Work can be a source of stress yet often people do not feel able to ask for help when they are struggling. It is vital therefore that managers routinely ask staff how they are doing, and discuss their mental health. This helps build people’s confidence to speak up earlier and get the help they need sooner.

Often managers want to help but feel like they don’t know how to, which is why The Counselling Service and Equality and Diversity Unit have arranged a full day training session for managers on mental health issues.

The session will cover:

  • Understanding stigma and its origins
  • Overcoming and dispelling myths
  • Understanding different mental health problems and their impact
  • Strategies to support people effectively
  • Sources of support in the University and locally
