Managing line managers to manage mental health
Eugene Farrell, chairman of the UK EAPA is quoted in the latest issue of Personnel Today on the business critical role line managers play when it comes to managing employees and mental ill health. In the article he comments, "Line managers are very much the key because they are on the front line, and they need to be trained to identify conditions and issues and act on them in a sensible way."
Eugene strongly advocates the training of line managers when it comes to managing mental ill health among employees. "You are not going to get very far if you do not train your line managers," he says.
