Event details:

Without a doubt the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted many of the issues that organisations must deal with, but the need to support the mental health of everyone within the business existed before the pandemic and will continue to do so, likely even more than before.

Through the modules within Leading mental health in the workplace, we will support you in bringing an extra dimension to your leadership – one which allows you to increase the effectiveness of your organisation as a whole.

Key features

Supporting good mental health in and beyond the workplace is now a necessity for employers as the connection between positive mental health and effective, balanced work life is more apparent than ever.

  • Grounded in rigorous research – As the importance of mental health becomes more widely acknowledged, make sure the guidance and knowledge you receive is reliable – with our academic expert, we have ensured that this programme is grounded in reliable, practical and academically led content.
  • For now and the future – This is a programme that will help you face current challenges personally and professionally, as well as preparing and equipping yourself for future challenges. Each module is highly relevant to the current context and will also be vital foundations for organisational mental health in the future.
  • Highly practical – At the Møller Institute, we go beyond just learning and understanding – you will learn, apply and practise tools and techniques to support mental health at both individual and team levels.
  • Fully online – All modules are delivered in a virtual environment, allowing you to access the learning and content safely and conveniently.
  • Interactive – Connecting with real people in our live sessions is designed to go beyond pre-recorded videos and lessons so that you can learn from others in similar situations and expand your networks.

Programme modules

Leading mental health in the workplace is made up of three modules, the three modules are:

  • Mental health and effective working
  • Building motivation and confidence
  • Building your team’s tolerance of uncertainty

You are able to register for the combined programme, which includes a certificate of completion, or alternatively each module can be taken individually.

The Møller Institute at Churchill College in the University of Cambridge provides space and context for the development of current and future leaders in government, industry, academia and civil society.
