The EssentialSkillz Managing Mental Health eLearning course follows on from the Mental Health Awareness course and aims to equip line managers with the skills necessary to support their team’s mental health. Line managers interact and observe their team members daily. Therefore, they are well placed to notice and intervene if an employee is struggling with their mental health. The course reviews key content from the Mental Health Awareness eLearning course, for example, the mental health continuum and the management standards model, but expands further on how organisations can develop plans and policies that promote positive mental health among employees and the vital role line managers have. The course also shows that traits associated with effective line management can contribute to the positive mental health of their team members.

Realistic case studies are used to give an insight into the signs and symptoms of the most common mental illnesses. An extended scenario demonstrates how a line manager could approach a conversation with a team member about their mental health and what support they can provide. In many cases, mental health is covered by equality legislation, which places a legal obligation on organisations and line managers. The course describes how line managers and organisations can comply with the law and promote equality in the workplace.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Managing Mental Health course can be customised to meet your needs. This enables your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
