CMI Unit 716 Strategic Approaches to Mental Health and Wellbeing
Strategies for mental health and wellbeing must be a priority for all organisations seeking to improve their productivity, capability, reputation and quality of outcomes. Prioritising mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is rapidly gaining traction through political and social campaigning. People are challenging the ‘always-on’ 24/7 culture, and the term ‘work-life’ balance is emerging as a requirement, rather than an aspiration.
About this course
The aim of the unit is for leaders to understand the impact of mental health and wellbeing on organisational performance.
