Driving Good Mental Health in the Workplace

25 modules


Dr William Davies



This online course is for managers and directors and focuses on how to manage in a way that generates good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, and doing so in a realistic way that works well for everybody.

Many people spend more waking hours at work than they spend anywhere else, so it is imperative that we do our best to get matters right in the workplace.

So this course spends only a little time on the mental health difficulties that can beset people, and focuses instead on what you as a manager or director can do to foster good mental health and wellbeing in a way that embeds it into your organisation. So we are not talking about mere ‘add-ons’, we are talking about operating a style and strategy that is good for your employees and colleagues and therefore is fundamentally good for your organisation in a realistic, practical, and measurable way.

Overall a very useful course. I experienced a few technical difficulties where I couldn't write text into some of the exercise boxes and noticed that some of the references were out of date.
