This award winning workshop will enable managers to more effectively:

* Discuss sensitive or contentious issues with employees
* Create accommodation strategies that work                                               
* Resolve conflicts more effectively
* Separate performance issues from mental health issues                           
* Avoid discrimination and human rights violations
Managers will learn and apply effective techniques through open group discussions and exercises. Video clips illustrate the challenges faced by managers and provide common discussion points. The Mental Health Works Participant’s Guide will be given to managers as a complement to the course. This invaluable reference tool will allow managers to identify challenges, clarify procedures and develop accommodations that work.
Mental Health Works training clients have experienced the following benefits: reduced absenteeism rates, shortened disability times and successful return-to-work, along with managers who are much more comfortable managing emotionally distraught employees. Discussions and exercises allow participants to reflect on specific workplace situations and develop appropriate and clear solutions. Participants also value the interaction with the group and the opportunity to learn from one another in the workshop setting.
