iact: Managing and Promoting Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace

With a managerial lanyard comes great responsibility! Since starting MenTalkHealth, we’ve got talking with every kind of business and organisation from TV production companies and IT services to charities and rugby teams. We’ve learnt that when managers take mental health seriously, the positive impact is felt far beyond the workplace.

But it can be tough to know where to begin when you’re trying to create a psychologically safe working culture. It can be even harder for managers to make sure they’re taking care of their own mental health while they’re at it.

That’s why we now offer this iact training for Managers.

It’s evidence-based, rooted in top academic research and accredited by The Royal College of Psychiatrists. But we’ll deliver it with lived experience, and all the warmth, honesty and humour of our much-loved MenTalkHealth podcast – and we can tailor it to the particular needs of your workplace or line of work, too.

  • You’ll learn about mental health and wellbeing issues, and how to recognise when further help might be needed.
  • You’ll pick up practical tools for managing stress, anxiety and low mood, and building resilience, for employees and for yourself.
  • You’ll find out how to connect with someone who may be experiencing difficulties.
  • You’ll get a clear understanding of relevant legislation and the Health and Safety Executive.
  • You’ll go away with your own manual and resource pack, with lots of tools to support colleagues and details of agencies and organisations where they can seek further help.

By becoming an approved iact Manager, you can promote mental health and wellbeing in your workplace, with the potential for a much wider impact.

You’ll also be helping MenTalkHealth to talk away stigma, get supportive conversations going – and ultimately help more men open up about mental health.
