TeamDoctor Provides Free Help for Employers and their Teams during Mental Health Awareness Week

15 – 21 May 2023 is Mental Health Awareness Week.

To help organisations and individuals manage stress and anxiety better, TeamDoctor is offering free access to their video-based online training course during Mental Health Awareness Week.

Professor Sir Cary Cooper, President of the Charted Institute of Personnel Development says:
“It is no longer okay to do nothing about employees mental health”.

Contributing to the TeamDoctor Mental Health Awareness training courses Sir Cary states that stress is the key driver of reduced productivity, absenteeism and presenteeism in the workplace.

Many organisations still view employee wellbeing as a fluffy concept and that stress and anxiety are normal emotions that everyone experiences. However, these can spiral out of control due to a multitude of life pressures around work, home and money issues which can then create a mental health problem.

Created with leading clinicians and industry experts, the TeamDoctor Mental Health Awareness Course and extensive film library gives a baseline of knowledge now essential in the workplace, to create a happier, healthier workforce and an enhanced employee experience.

Topics include how to manage stress, how line managers can improve team wellbeing, how to spot the signs of stress in yourself and your team, and importantly how to improve workplace relationships and culture to promote wellbeing. There are also a host of practical stress-busting techniques.

With many organisations operating remotely the mental and physical health of employees has never been more important, or more difficult. Looking after an organisation’s wellbeing is an essential part of any company’s strategy and the responsibility of the Board to implement for all team members from day one, ideally as part of the induction and onboarding process.

Rosie Runciman from TeamDoctor said, “We are offering our Mental Health Awareness online training course for free during Mental Health Awareness Week to help those who want to find out more about what Employers can do and should do for their workforce. It’s open to anyone who wants to experience the benefits for themselves and learn how to assist others”.
