Anyone can be affected by a mental health condition either themselves or a family member, friend or colleague.
Mental Health issues in the Workplace are becoming more recognised with about 1 in 6 people experiencing problems. This can lead to stress, underachievement and absences. Until now, this has, to some extent, been suppressed to avoid stigma labelling and fear of the loss of a job.
These Mental health courses help employers and fellow staff recognise the symptoms, to start a supportive conversation and to signpost further help. They are not run by Ladybird, but by 4 Minutes Training, a sister Company and the links, below will take you through to that website for further information.
