Mandatory Mental Health Awareness Training

Yesterday, I sat in on a Mental Health Awareness webinar where one of the guest presenters said that in their organisation, completing mental health awareness training was mandatory.

The organisation has nothing to do with health, quite the opposite in fact.

I’ve not come across this before. Is it a thing? Is it becoming more common place?

I can’t help question whether this is an appropriate approach to win over the hearts and more importantly the minds of this workforce .
