Understanding and Managing Mental Illness in the Workplace
Unfortunately mental illness is still poorly understood and often surrounded by prejudice, ignorance and fear. Many employees are reluctant to admit they suffer from a mental illness and their behaviour is therefore often misinterpreted by management and colleagues.
With the World Health Organisation (WHO) currently predicting that depression will be the second highest cause of morbidity by 2020, it is surely time for employers to address the epidemic.

We conduct a 2 ½ hour interactive workshop for Disability Claims Assessors, Human Resources personnel, and Managers and Supervisors in any work environment.
