The human cost of poor mental health is just as important as the financial cost. This course will help your employees recognise when they may be struggling to cope and will also help them support others in their organisation.
Talking about mental health should be easier now than in the past and this course will make this even easier in the future. The cost of poor mental health to the economy as a whole is estimated at between £74 billion and £99 billion per year.
This eLearning course covers many situations that an employee who suffers from a mental health issue may experience, such as telling their boss, improving their working environment or facing the return to work after a period of absence. People suffering from mental health conditions can often face stigma and discrimination, so it makes sense to raise awareness of this issue amongst staff.
The course looks at issues such as depression and bi-polar disorder and ensures that everyone can spot signs of mental health problems before they become too severe. The course also helps individuals recognise when they may be experiencing mental health issues and what they can do to help themselves.
Examples in the course include if a colleague is arriving late for work or if their productivity is falling. They may be making mistakes and seem tired, but by being aware of these signs you will be able to make a positive contribution to getting the employee back to full health and able to work productively again. This will benefit everyone in the organisation.
