Poor mental health can have a detrimental effect on a person’s workplace performance. Although managers and team leaders are usually able to recognise these problems among their staff, many often feel unsure about how best to support an employee with a mental health issue.

Managing Employee Mental Health – the latest short course offering from the University of Tasmania – aims to teach people how to successfully identify and appropriately respond to common mental health issues that can arise in the workplace.

This practical 1-day workshop will run in Hobart on Wednesday 13 February 2019 and will be taught by Dr Sarah Dawkins and Professor Angela Martin from the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics at the University of Tasmania.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn new workplace skills, such as:

  • How to identify and be more aware of employee mental health issues;
  • How to develop and implement an initial response plan;
  • How to provide ongoing management of an employee’s mental health issue;
  • How legal and economic considerations can contribute to managing mental health issues in the workplace.
