The number of working days lost due to mental health problems has increased significantly in Germany in recent years. However, especially due to the increased stress on many employees during the Corona pandemic, the topic of mental health in the workplace is more important than ever. As part of the certificate program Healthy Leadership (“Gesund(es) Führen”), managers and employees deal with mental health in a changing working environment and learn how to deal proactively with mental problems in the work context.
Participants will learn about applicable tools and also how to establish health-promoting work structures in their own organization or team, how to reduce prejudice and discrimination against mentally ill people, and how to prevent avoidable absences.

Why this program?

The certificate program “Healthy Leadership” provides a holistic overview of the topic with evidence-based and practice-proven support.
At the same time, participants learn how to recognize and address psychological stress in themselves and others. The aim is to reduce or avoid employee absences and to promote the mental health of employees within the company.
