Managing with Mental Health in Mind is a two-part course aimed at staff with management, supervision, or leadership responsibilities. It will challenge stigma and give leaders the practical tools to spot signs of ill health. Our proactive approach to mental health aims to prevent illness and enable early intervention.

This promotes quicker recovery for the individual, limits the impact of ill health on the College and helps employees be the best they can be. Upskilling yourself in this way boosts resilience, promotes engagement, and enhances staff loyalty.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at managers and those who have supervisory responsibilities. If you are not a manager or supervisor but would like to attend the course, please get in touch with us, and we will try to accommodate you.  
It is recommended that you attend Mental Health First Aid Half Day training.

This is a two-part course split over two days. You must attend both parts to avoid a cancellation charge.
