The Mental Health Awareness program is an introductory course with the aim of increasing mental health literacy, decreasing the stigma associated with this topic and building the confidence of participants to help others. This program is specifically designed to help managers and supervisors become more sensitive to employee behavioural changes that may stem from mental health issues so that they can take appropriate, compassionate and caring actions. Participants will learn a framework for approaching employees to offer help before the situation becomes more serious.
The Mental Health Awareness course covers three of the most common mental health disorders, focusing on understanding the basics of each and learning how to reach out and offer help: Mood-Related Disorders; Anxiety-Related Disorders; Self-Care
