Mental Health Responsive (MHR)

Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers, Team Leader & Supervisors

Mental Health Responsive (MHR) provides more than a practical understanding of the key issues surrounding mental health, both in the workplace and the wider community. The MHR workshops have been specifically designed to work on the core of culture within organisations of any size. They are also flexible in that specific content and focus can be adjusted to suit your organisation. We achieve this through a consultative approach through a structured and supported system in real time.

The MHR workshops will help the attendees to build a knowledge of the principles of mental health. Help to further understand the impact of Mental Health. Create or adapt mental health policies in the workplace. Provide pathways to support and inform of the benefits of working towards better mental health practises. Create working links with wellbeing programmes and maximising their value.
