Mental health toolkit

Turn your mental health awareness into action with 40% off our Mental Health Awareness Toolkit until 31 May 2018

Everyone seems to be talking about mental health, stress and wellbeing – and no wonder. With latest statistics showing that one in three of us will experience a period of mental ill health every year we all need to talk about mental health more and Mental Health Awareness Week is a great time to start. We can help you start the conversation in your workplace with our Mental Health Toolkit.
 
People learn in different ways so within the mental health toolkit we have provided formats that cover those with preferences for reading, video learning and face-to-face training. Hosted on your intranet or Learning Management System these guides and videos can be accessed at your line managers' convenience and take-up can be monitored as part of your pan-organisation mental health strategy.

 
In the toolkit you’ll receive:

Line manager guide: Mental health at work, sponsored by EY

This guide is about mental health and will challenge managers first to look at their own attitudes and assumptions about people who experience mental ill-health. It will also help them to look after their own mental wellbeing and become more empathetic to their employees. Most of all, this guide will help your managers become better people managers.

Briefing: Employment adjustments for people experiencing Stress, Anxiety and Depression, sponsored by HSBC

They are intended for personnel, human resources, recruitment and training specialists as well as line managers. This resource will improve managers’ strategies for managing complex mental health situations.

Line manager trainingMental health at work: This session provides managers with an introduction to mental health as an equality and inclusion issue, helping them understand the experiences of colleagues experiencing mental ill-health and the barriers they may face in the workplace.
