Supporting employee mental health is a priority for business owners in all industries. Research from Deloitte shows one in six workers experience a mental health problem at any one time and the right training can be invaluable for supporting employee’s mental health. Mental health training courses are suitable for a wide range of companies and adding them to your range of available training options will add value to your business. Let’s look at why mental health training courses are an invaluable addition to your course catalogue.

Build Awareness

Mental health training courses help employees build their awareness and help to understand their own wellbeing and that of others. It can be invaluable to explore different mental health conditions and understand how they can impact someone’s life and work.

Develop Coping Mechanisms

Managing your mental health is important but not everyone knows the best approach to protect their wellbeing. It’s not possible to remove all triggers and stresses, so building coping strategies is essential to making mental health conditions manageable.

Challenge Stigma

There is still a lot of stigma around mental health. People are comfortable taking time off work for physical illness but often feel uncomfortable doing the same when they are struggling mentally. Good mental health training helps to breakdown stigma and makes it easier to empathise.

Understand the right Support

Knowing how to support a colleague in the right way can be difficult without the right information and experience. Well-designed mental health training courses can help build team resilience and help to foster positive wellbeing in the wider team.  The wrong comment, even with the best intentions, can cause all kinds of problems and the right training can help make it easier to navigate mental wellbeing within any team.
