We all appreciate that mental health is a complex issue, and this training is not about looking at the clinical aspects of mental health. Instead, this training is used to consider how events can influence mental health either for better or worse and to consider what role leaders/managers play in this dynamic interaction. There is a twin focus to this training; 1) how leaders/managers can influence the mental health of those around them and 2) how leaders/managers can manage their own mental health. All courses come with various handouts, diagnostics and access to resources.
