Mental health in the workplace

In German companies, mental illness is now one of the most common reasons for sick days among employees. The rising number of these sick days often poses major challenges for companies, but also for colleagues and entire teams.

Leaders are often not prepared for dealing with employees who are mentally stressed or ill. The Corona pandemic and increased remote working and working from home present team leaders with additional challenges.

Many problems can be prevented if leaders use tried-and-tested methods in their daily work and in (digital) employee management. This is where the online seminar “Healthy Leadership: Mental Health in the Workplace” comes in. It provides participants with a holistic overview of how the mental health of employees can be maintained and promoted and how psychosocial stress can be identified and addressed. Participants also learn methods to promote the prevention of psychosocial stress in the work environment and to anchor the topic of “healthy leadership” in the corporate culture.

Why this program?

The seminar is held in cooperation with Dr. Simon Senner, senior physician at the Klinikum rechts der Isar, the university hospital of the Technical University of Munich (TUM). It combines medical background knowledge with leadership approaches (e.g. methods of interviewing, methods of employee management). In Module 2, participants learn all the relevant information about “risk assessment of mental stress” methods, which companies are legally obliged to carry out. Team leaders play a central role in this process.

The seminar is deliberately held in a small group of participants and thus allows a confidential atmosphere as well as space for individual situations and cases from participants’ working environment, which are of course treated completely confidentially. The seminar fee includes a free individual case consultation for participants for one year after the seminar by Dr. Senner.
