Mental well-being is important for a productive workforce and a healthy workplace. Our Mental Health Workplace Programmes aim to equip employees and employers with skills and knowledge to take charge of their own mental well-being and to create a supportive environment.

Management Training workshops

The objective of the Management Training programme is to equip managers and HR personnel with self-care knowledge and skills to be supportive leaders at the workplace. It consists of a 1 day core workplace mental health workshop, and 2 half-day supplementary workshops (optional) to build capacity in the area of workplace mental health and wellbeing. Each workshop is catered for 30 pax* and can be held on-site at companies. 

*Attendees should be in supervisory roles or HR personnel.
