Relating and Responding to Mental Health: Manager's Edition

In today's society, we are beginning to recognize the importance of talking openly about mental health in an effort to reduce stigma and mitigate costs associated with staff turnover and burnout. The question for many managers, leaders and employers then becomes how to talk about mental health in way that promotes connection in a safe and productive way.  

This workshop provides participants with practical skills they can use to prioritize wellness in the workplace, recognize warning signs of mental illness, open safe and productive conversations surrounding difficult topics, manage difficult behaviours with positive performance management skills and navigate challenging conversations by setting limits and boundaries.
