A new study in Australia has found that mental health training for managers can make a big difference.
The study aimed to investigate the effect of mental health training on managers’ knowledge, attitudes, confidence and behaviour towards employees with mental health problems and its effect on employee sickness absence.
It found that a four-hour manager mental health training programme could lead to a ‘significant reduction in work-related sickness absence’.
March on Stress Director, Professor Neil Greenberg, said: “The results are significant in evidencing the effect that mental health training can have on sickness absence. We know that good leadership can have a positive effect on the mental health of staff, and this goes further in exploring the importance, and effects, of specific mental health training for managers.”
