We have partnered with mental health charity Mind to develop a mental health training programme tailored to the needs of the banking sector. The programme is designed to enable line managers to support a mentally healthy workplace.
The programme, which has been successfully piloted by four major UK banks, consists of five modules which are compatible with most learning management systems.
The pilot has been independently evaluated by the CiPD, who found that managers were positive about the training and felt:
- More skilled at noticing signs of poor mental health
- Clearer on their responsibilities concerning employees' mental health
- More confident in supporting their direct reports who are experiencing mental health problems
- More able to have conversations about mental health in their workplace
