FutureLearn is offering a free course on “Managing Mental Health and Stress”.  The course is instructed by Dr. Karen Maher PhD Business and Economics, Assistant Professor in Occupational, Business and Organisational Psychology, Chair of Organisational Psychology for the British Academy of Management, and was developed in partnership with Coventry University.

Our mental health is as important as our physical health, and it can fluctuate on a spectrum from good to poor.  In this course, you will have the opportunity to discuss the definitions of mental health and stress, and explore how to recognise the key signs.

The focus of the course will be on the cost of mental health problems and workplace stress at both individual and organisational levels.  Assessing interventions to combat workplace stress and the value of performance coaching and its impact upon employee wellbeing will also be reviewed.

It covers:

  • What is poor mental health?
  • What is stress?
  • Theories and models of stress
  • Murphy’s three levels of interventions (1988)
  • Performance coaching
  • Interventions to combat workplace stress

This course is for workers and employers alike, and anyone who is looking for the opportunity to further understand the link between work-related stress and mental health problems. It is also for those who wish to know more about recognising the signs of mental illnesses.
