I have completed a Mental Health Training for Managers (covering Mental Health; Trust, Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, imposter syndrome etc) course today delivered by Sara Maude Workplace Wellbeing Specialist
The course highlighted that one our the greatest challenge as managers when talking about Mental Health is the fear of getting it wrong or making things worse.
There is still so much stigma attached to Mental Health that raising awareness and educating managers in the workplace is critical.. for the well being of our colleagues (and ourselves).
Talking about your feelings isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s part of taking charge of your wellbeing and doing what you can to stay healthy.
Remember to look after yourself. Eat and Sleep well. Your brain needs nutrients to stay healthy and function well. If things are getting too much for you and you feel you can’t cope, ask for help.
This course gives us the tools to have confident conversations around mental health and well-being.
I would like to say Thank You to Sara for her passion, expertise and sense of humour delivering these sessions to us.
