Mentor, motivator, moderator, mental health first aider… enabling people managers in the post pandemic workplace

Despite a growing awareness of and support for mental health in UK workplaces, many employees remain reluctant to discuss their mental health with employers.

Join our discussion about the importance of championing and supporting people managers, with practical guidance on how to do so. The workshop will explore:

  • How the conversation around reactive ‘first aiders’ now develops into preventative mental health advocates
  • Whether training for managers to spot the signs of poor mental health has considered the sudden introduction to hybrid working, and change in interactions between managers and employees
  • Balancing the risk between engaging managers to champion mental health support whilst ensuring their own mental health is not impacted
  • Confidentiality and the importance of instilling trust to drive staff engagement
