This Can Happen’s Top Mental Health Tips for Line Managers

This Can Happen is happening – soon! As the big day approaches, Team TCH is working flat out to make sure this conference is the best of its kind in the UK. Without giving away too much of the incredible content you can expect to hear at the event, we have produced some brilliant little videos with our expert speakers and Board members to bring you some top mental health tips.

One area that we have been exploring is the role of line managers, and what part they can play in looking after their colleagues and employees in the most effective way.

Dr Danie Du Plessis tells us:

“It’s important for senior people to recognise that we live in a changing environment and any business is going through stress so let’s not pretend it’s not there. We need to acknowledge that and allow people to say ‘you know what I’m really stressed at the moment there’s just too much going on’.”

Neil Laybourn says:

“Take notice.” Line managers must be aware of the mood and feelings of members of their team and read between the lines during conversations and interactions. Click here to watch the full video.
