Understanding mental health and its impact

Our mental health is as important as our physical health, and it can fluctuate on a spectrum from good to poor. Work-related stress and mental health problems often go together and the symptoms can be very similar. In this course, you will have the opportunity to discuss the definitions of mental health and stress, and explore how to recognise the key signs.

We will focus on the cost of mental health problems and workplace stress at both individual and organisational levels. We’ll also assess interventions to combat workplace stress and the value of performance coaching and its impact upon employee wellbeing.

What topics will you cover?

  • What is poor mental health?
  • What is stress?
  • Theories and models of stress
  • Measuring stress
  • The three levels of interventions (ie primary, secondary, tertiary) by Murphy (1988)
  • Performance coaching
  • Consider interventions to combat workplace stress
