Mental ill health covers a wide range of different experiences: from the worries and grief we all experience as a part of everyday life, to coping with stress in the workplace, to serious psychological conditions. On the positive side, looking after our own mental and emotional wellbeing is an important part of coping with the normal stresses of life and working productively. This free course from Acas is designed to introduce employers to the key issues, and covers:
What is mental health?
Common mental health conditions
Supporting presence, managing absence
Equality Act and reasonable adjustments
