Mental Health First Aid for Supervisors and Managers Workshop

This workshop will review sign and symptoms of mental health and discuss frameworks to support Supervisors and Managers when dealing with employees struggling to cope.
By prioritising the mental wellbeing of your employees, retailers can demonstrate their commitment to the health and safety of their teams, which can help them stand out from their competitors and attract top talent. Investing in mental wellbeing programs can also help retailers reduce absenteeism, increase employee productivity, and improve staff retention rates. This comprehensive two-day workshop is designed to equip retailers with the fundamentals and best practices of providing mental health first aid in today’s fast-paced retail environment.

From identifying the signs of mental health issues to offering effective support, the workshop covers a range of topics that can help retail managers and supervisors create a safe and supportive workplace culture. By implementing the insights and strategies discussed in the workshop, retailers can better manage mental health issues at work, protect the wellbeing of their employees, and drive business success. We are delighted to offers retailers booking group workshops the opportunity to tailor the content to address their own organisational requirements.
