Talking About Mental Health as a Leader

As a leader, you’re responsible to develop and manage your team members–and sometimes that includes connecting with them about their mental health. Until recently, leaders have largely been discouraged from talking to team members about their mental health in the workplace. Avoiding these conversations leads to missed opportunities to support team members, get them connected to the right resources, and strengthen psychological safety and rapport between leaders and direct reports. To be a people leader in today’s workplace means knowing how to have these conversations. In this course, Melissa Doman, MA shows you how to do just that. Join Melissa as she explains how to navigate this terrain, starting with the recognition that people are still afraid to discuss their mental health with their managers at work, and why. Learn the concrete language, triaging considerations, boundaries, and conversational approaches required to have constructive mental health conversations in the workplace.
