This training responds to important workplace needs

Work is a significant part of our life.

 

More than a necessary paycheck, work gives us a sense of purpose, satisfaction and is part of how we identify ourselves. Our personal successes and perceived failures at work often impact our mental health and well-being.

 

Until recently, many employers have not considered the mental health of employees. Workplace wellness initiatives have provided workers with additional benefits but have not considered a deeper look at the workplace culture that can be a driving force behind burnout.

 

Employees whose managers received the training report: 

  • Reduced anger and loneliness;

  • Reduced risk factors for poor mental health; 

  • Improved feelings of support from manager; and

  • Increased feelings of team cohesion.

Our one-hour, online Workplace Mental Health Training for Managers teaches leaders and managers tangible skills to:

 

  • Recognize the warning signs of mental health distress; 

  • Learn appropriate ways to respond to workplace mental health concerns;

  • Learn practical strategies to reduce employee stress; and

  • Learn preventative strategies to support employees’ mental health.

 

This powerful training program was originally developed in partnership with U.S. military by occupational health experts. 

Leslie B. Hammer, Ph.D., is the Associate Director of Applied Research and Professor at the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at Oregon Health & Science University and the Co-Director of the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, one of 10 centers of excellence in Total Worker Health® funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. 

Jennifer Dimoff, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa, as well as an affiliate faculty member at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

" I found the Workplace Mental Health Training to be highly relevant and effective for both the managers I work with and their teams. My university will be making this a required part of our manager training going forward."
