Course Introduction

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, many of our previous attitudes towards and ways of working in organisations of all types has changed. Many organisations now have dispersed work environments with employees working from their homes. This has created significant changes to work content and work context, contributing to work stress for many.

Studies throughout the Asia Pacific region has revealed the increase in poor mental health of employees and highlighted the need for organisations to take steps to ensure optimal mental health and wellbeing for the staff.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) have found 5 leading mental health problems in the region:

● Depression
● Anxiety
● Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
● Suicidal behaviour, and
● Substance-abuse Disorder

According to WHO, work is good for health. A healthy state of mental well-being can also contribute to improved productivity in businesses.

This Managing Mental Health & Wellbeing in the Virtual Workplace program is guaranteed to provide you with practical, easy-to-implement tools and strategies that enable you to look after your own mental health and wellbeing as well as that of your employees.
