Mental Health in the Workplace During COVID-19


Mental Health in the Workplace During COVID-19

This is a free online module. You will learn practical solutions to address stress in the workplace and create mentally healthy workspaces.

What does the course cover?

The 3-hour module explores common mental health impacts associated with work in the humanitarian sector in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing on examples from the MENA region, this module offers practical solutions that organisations and individuals can implement to reduce and mitigate staff stress and mental ill-health and create mentally healthy workplaces.

If you are new to the topic of Mental Health, we recommend you complete the RedR UK training module Managing Stress During the COVID-19 Pandemic to build you knowledge of mental health trends in the MENA region, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health, and basic psychological first aid skills, prior to attending this module.

By the end of the module, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the impacts of humanitarian work and the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of personnel
  • Identify where to access resources to support mental health and well-being during the pandemic;
  • Outline the role of the organisation in staff stress management
  • Describe best practices to reduce workplace stress and mitigate mental ill-health;
  • Suggest how to implement best practice in their role as an employee or supervisor to create a mentally healthy workplace.

Who should apply?

The module is designed for individuals and organisations interested in creating mentally healthy workplaces during the COVID-19 pandemic in the MENA region. This includes personnel from governments, humanitarian and development organisations, international and national non-government organisations, community-based organisations, faith-based organisations, women’s and youth groups.
