Course overview

Course description

The way in which our work is managed/coordinated and the way in which we are led and lead has an impact on our health and well-being. Through developing a greater awareness of psychological and/or mental health at work we will be in a much stronger position to protect and promote individual as well as collective health, well-being and performance.
