Leading with Mental Health will challenge stigma and give leaders the practical tools to spot the signs of ill-health. Our proactive approach to mental health aims to stop 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.
