How it works

The stress factors of university life, such as moving to a new location, financial concerns and research demands, can put postgraduate students at risk of developing poor mental health. This interactive eLearning course is designed to raise awareness of mental health issues, helping supervisors to support students who are struggling at university – such as completing assignments, improving their working environment and returning to study after an absence – to help raise awareness and reduce discrimination and stigma.

Developed in conjunction with Liverpool University, this interactive and engaging online course helps Supervisors understand those stress factors in depth, how to spot the signs of poor mental health, how to take practical steps to help your PGRs and how to deal with a crisis.

Is everyone in your business committed to promoting positive mental health and well-being in the workplace? This highly interactive and engaging online course will help everyone stay alert to potential problems at work and will enable them to offer advice and guidance accordingly. It makes business sense to ensure that managers and employees are aware of the signs of potential mental health problems. This will not only help them to protect the rights of the individual but will also help them be aware of the needs of the business.

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 within the whole organisation. Your managers and their teams will be more ready to spot “red flags” – the signs of any mental health issues – and what they can do to support your colleagues if they are struggling to cope at work. 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.

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.
