Event Profile

Accommodating Stress, Anxiety, and Mental Disorders in the Workplace

May 28, 2024

Who Should Attend:

Leaders, managers, human resources professionals, and anyone in a supervisory role seeking to enhance their understanding and skills in addressing mental health concerns in the workplace.

Webinar Description:

Mental health concerns historically were not discussed openly in the workplace. Employees suffered in silence, if not in secret, and concerns from others thrived in the whispers and gossip of co-workers. Times have changed, and teams need to change with them.

This course explores mental health as a critical factor in employee engagement, team productivity, and workplace safety. You will gain skills and knowledge needed to foster open conversations about mental health in the workplace, develop effective approaches to support employees dealing with mental health challenges, and ultimately create a supportive and resilient team environment.
It will also start preparing you to effectively navigate challenging scenarios. What do you do when a team is scared of an apparently unstable employee, and yet the organization is scared to terminate the employment because of that perceived instability? And if an employee is struggling, how does a leader ensure work is completed when the employee needs intermittent or extended leave? These questions and more will be answered in this engaging and informative program.
