MANAGER TRAINING SERIES


Mental Health for Managers (2 Part Series)

As a manager, roles take on many forms. One thing that has become clear in today’s world is that mental health issues present themselves in all aspects of life and can be a concern in the workplace. As managers, it is important to have a baseline understanding of mental health concerns, tools and resources and confidence to talk about the subject with employees.

  • Session 1 (2 hours, but can be broken into 2 -1 hour sessions): In this workshop, you will hear from a licensed clinical therapist to provide a basic understanding and definitions of mental health terminology and ways to support employees while keeping appropriate boundaries and working relationships. We will focus on the stigma around mental health concerns, prevalence and dispel any misperceptions around common mental health diagnoses. Then participants will then learn more about how to support employees and ways to prioritize their own emotional self-care. Lastly, the training will conclude with company-specific resources for continued support. Providing resources and allowing for an open discussion about how the information has been utilized and focus on answering questions and having peer discussion on best practices from each other.

  • Session 2 (Group Discussion): To finish off all managers will have the opportunity to actively join in an open discussion about best mental health practices in their organization. This will also be an opportunity to share what best practices you have implemented for yourself and for your team, and discuss the challenges you faced or successes you made. Note, the Coach will not be providing therapy. The speaker will facilitate a conversation around the issue and share tools to shift negative thinking.
