- Additional Info
We are often left in the position that we are only aware of stress related issues in others when they are already suffering the effects and their work is being affected. This can be a challenging and sensitive situation to resolve. This course helps remove the barriers and stigma around mental health in the workplace. We also measure the confidence they have in the topic before and after the course and this information can be provided to the Organisation if required.
All delegates will receive a comprehensive workbook and certificate of attendance.
