MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS & UPSKILLING

Sometimes everything starts with a good intention: giving employees the opportunity to participate in mental wellbeing programs. However, often they do not know what to take part in. Guiding them into awareness on the mental health topic is key. 

Upskilling trainings are an important part of the mental wellbeing journey. FindYourWay Coaching offers communication and social skills trainings with a focus on mental health.
 
Alessandra's methodology is currently used by clients in multinational companies in Switzerland and Europe and in recognized universities like HSG. Trainings are offered in English, Italian, Spanish and French.

You can have a look as well at our services brochure.


 

- Mental Health Awareness Sessions (1.5 hour):  What is mental wellbeing, why fostering good mental health at the workplace is important and how to decrease stigma.

Global trends on mental wellbeing are shown, together with a taster of interactive exercises on self-care and stress management.

-Assertiveness Skills Training for stress management (4 hours): A hands-on training on being more self-assertive at work, placing boundaries and establishing non-violent communication best practices. By learning how to do so, we impact  the company culture and communication style towards a more compassionate, authentic and proactive company culture, and we make burnout prevention.

- Managers: Preparation for mental health conversations with reports (4 hours)

How do we navigate talking about mental health in a team or in a one to one conversation at work? What do we say if we notice a different behavior or suspect poor mental health?

It is important we do not consider this as a  taboo talk. In this course Alessandra will explain you how to do that step by step.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE JUST NEED TO TALK..

Coaching is an excellent tool for stress prevention and personal development, because it is a guidance and a conversation moment on topics that might not always be tackled at work.

  • Individual coaching can be done during office hours or after work, either in person or online;

  • The organization purchases a number of hours and we will help you allocate it. We offer a variety of languages too: English, Italian, Spanish, German and French.

  • Most wanted topics are stress management, self-care, feedback, remote work, self-esteem, difficult conversations, digital wellness. 

  • Confidentiality at all times

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID CERTIFICATION

This certification is the pillar of prevention and early intervention when it comes to mental health at work: detect early signs of distress in others, act, open the conversation, support and encourage professional help. And you don't need to be an expert to do that, just as you don't need to be a doctor to provide physical first aid.

 

The course includes 4 sessions in person or 7 online and each participant gets a comprehensive handbook with the best resources in mental health in different languages. This Certification has been taught around the world since the year 2000.

 FindYourWay is an official partner of Mental Health First Aid Switzerland, and offers this course as a webinar or in person, for private corporations, schools, universities and also on public courses. Read more about the content here.
