Leaders play a vital role in creating a mentally healthy work environment. Research consistently tells us that one of the most influential factors on a workplace’s ability to thrive is regular mental health and wellbeing training for leaders.

Employees are more likely to thrive in workplaces where they feel seen and heard by leadership. Leaders also need to be seen modelling what is expected in the workplace including taking care of their own wellbeing.

SuperFriend’s Workplace Mental Health Essentials for Leaders course promotes individual wellbeing and increases understanding of how to support a cohesive team and promote a mentally healthy workplace.
