Managing a team or group of workers can be a challenge, especially when you are watching out for changes in their mental health. The main types of concerns are anxiety, depression, suicidal behaviours, stress, psychosis and substance misuse.
This module details the signs and symptoms of these critical areas to help guide supervisors, managers and work colleagues on what to look for when working with others. The training gives examples of signs and symptoms as well as strategies, exercises and activities that they can use to relieve symptoms.
The training advises when symptoms should be referred to for professional help. The module encourages managers, supervisors and employees to understand their workplace policies and know the contact details of their EAP so they can immediately share them if they need to support a fellow worker.
