How can managers support wellbeing in the workplace?
The role of a manager has always been to get the best out of their people. We know that work can have a huge impact on our overall wellbeing.
For some managers 'mental health' is a minefield, the new bad back, or nothing to do with them.
For others, creating workplaces that support good wellbeing is not only the right thing to do, it's good for business. It's a win-win.
As a manager, how do you encourage a workplace culture that supports and promotes wellbeing?
Would you know if someone was struggling in the office or working remotely?
How do you even start a conversation? What if you say the wrong thing and make it worse, or end up with a grievance?
Get answers to these questions and so much more.
Our team of specialists have come together to provide you with evidence based guidance in this manager specific online course. We've developed this module to build on the knowledge gained in our Mental Health Awareness Course. This module is focussed on the challenges and opportunities that managers face in supporting wellbeing at work.

What’s in our
'Managing Workplace Mental Health and Wellbeing' module?
Unit 1: A welcome message
Terry welcomes you to the course and sets out what's coming.
Unit 2: Let's see what we already know
Find out how much you already know in this interactive quiz. In it we challenge some of the more commonly held views about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Unit 3: In the real world...
In this unit, we explore some of the challenges and opportunities facing managers in three real world scenarios:
1: Creating supportive workplaces:
How do you create a more proactive approach to wellbeing, rather than just reacting when people return from the sick? In this unit we focus on what you can you do to influence the culture in your workplace.
2: Spotting the signs and what to do:
The world has changed, and for many managers, looking after the wellbeing of remote workers is even more challenging than managing people face to face. In this interactive unit, you are in the driver seat, identifying signs of illness and deciding what to do about them.
3: Considerations for managers:
If an employee has a mental health problem, what does that mean for you as their manager? In this unit we explore the legal position and share considerations to help get this right (both for the employee and the business.)
Unit 4: Looking after yourself
With so many demands on your time, putting your own wellbeing on the agenda can be a real challenge. The truth is, there is only so much anyone can take. So how do you look after your own wellbeing?
Unit 5: Let's review
A final knowledge check to see if we've done our jobs properly, followed by a closing message from Terry.
