Mental ill health is now the number one reason for staff absence in the UK. The rate of presenteeism is also rising, resulting in reduced wellbeing and productivity of workers. The impact of mental ill health costs employers in the region of £36 billion per year (Centre for Mental Health, 2021).

It is vital employees managing distress or mental ill health receive support from colleagues and line managers; however, many employers admit to owning a lack of knowledge and confidence in how to approach and support colleagues who may be struggling.

We deliver effective training programmes for staff at all levels, whether they are at risk of exposure to stress and other mental ill health or not. Mental health training is key to reducing problems and promoting greater wellbeing and productivity.

MOHS has engaged psychotherapists, accredited third parties and industry thought leaders to develop a range of mental health training courses and services.

Our scope is constantly broadening, but here are current programmes:

Mental health training courses

Emotional Resilience
Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers: Full Day
Mental Health Awareness Training for Managers: Half Day
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA): Two-Day Course
Reducing overwhelm and pressure
Using Psychology to create a culture of discipline
