Understanding the Astutis Mental Health and Workplace Safety Course

October 2023

On 27 September 2023, Astutis launched the Astutis Mental Health and Workplace Safety course. 

The course offers guidance on an often overlooked and untapped opportunity to enhance workplace safety by harnessing positive mental health. 

Workplace safety and mental health expert Dr Tim Marsh shaped and headlines the course. Tim serves up over 25 years of research and expert understanding in a concentrated training programme that should take no longer than six hours to complete. 

The course is structured into five core modules;

  1. Module 1: The impact of mental health on health
  2. Module 2: What is mental health
  3. Module 3: Supporting Struggling Workers
  4. Module 4: Creating a positive culture
  5. Module 5: Looking after yourself 

Each module concludes with formative learning checks at the end of each module to ensure learners understand each module before moving on. This means no cumulative assessment awaits learners at the end of the course. 

Why should you enrol staff on the course?

The Astutis Mental Health and Workplace Safety course is primed for organisations who want a more informed and educated workforce on the impact of mental health on workplace safety. Dr Tim Marsh offers industry-leading expertise on the best ways to positively influence mental health and how to utilise that change for good in the workplace.
