MHFA England is pleased to announce that it has updated and rebranded the Shift Line Managers’ resource which is now freely available on our website. The resource provides helpful guidance and advice to employers who would like to improve the way they support employees experiencing mental health issues and create mentally healthy workplaces within their organisations.
The Line Managers’ resource was originally developed by Shift, the Department of Health’s programme to reduce the stigma and discrimination directed towards people with mental health problems. It is part of Shift’s ‘Action on Stigma’ initiative aimed at supporting employers to promote good mental health and reduce discrimination. The resource is an update of the Mind Out for Mental Health Line Managers’ Resource.
It may be also be useful to existing MHFA instructors when delivering MHFA and MHFA Lite in the workplace. The Line Managers’ resource can be downloaded for free here. Printed versions are available via our Instructors.
