Managers, leaders and supervisors play an important role in their team’s wellbeing but it can be difficult to know what to do.

You don’t need to be a mental health expert to make a difference. Training helps.

This training will help you build your wellbeing leadership skills and show you how you can support others (and yourself) which can lead to a more productive team.

This easy-to-do training is delivered by an expert psychologist from Black Dog Institute.
