What is mental health training?

Mental health training teaches employees about common mental health conditions. Done well, it reduces the stigma surrounding mental health issues and teaches people to spot warning signs for complex mental health issues, such as cyber bullying, trauma, PTSD, depression and anxiety.
While all employees can benefit from this type of instruction, mental health training is most often given to people in caring roles or those who interact with the public.
These can include Teachers, Healthcare providers, First responders, Librarians and Social workers

In addition to the above professions, corporate mental health training looks to managers and administrators as important stewards of your employee’s mental health. Many companies choose to train their managers to spot signs of excessive stress or other issues that might lead to mental health challenges among their staff.

Why is Mental Health Training important?

Mental health issues have always been a silent illness. A person can appear to be healthy and happy while concealing tremendous suffering. A broken leg in a cast is a visible sign of physical distress, but an employee experiencing mental health issues may seem outwardly fine.

Mental health training helps employees recognize the signs of mental distress in themselves and others. This helps them not only handle larger crisis but also to intervene before the distress becomes an emergency.
