Each year, the Canton of Aargau, distinguishes projects that have made a contribution towards the physical, mental and social well-being of its citizens. The focus of this year's Health Promotion Award was mental health and how to improve it. Our Leaders Care training tool managed to hold its own against challenges from seven other nominated projects thanks to its innovative approach and substantial scope.

Leaders Care raises awareness among managers

Leaders Care has been part of the service portfolio offered by Helsana Business Health since March 2015. The practical online training tool, which is available free of charge, aims to raise awareness among both managers and HR professionals of the significance of mental problems in the workplace. The light-hearted approach will hopefully enable managers to become more confident in recognising the signs of mental strain quickly and in taking effective action. The training tool was developed in collaboration with experts from Psychiatrie Baselland and with the financial assistance of Verein Artisana.

Prize money for further enhancements

Helsana was presented with the prize on 17 November at the 2nd Cantonal Awareness Event on "Mental Health" in Aarau. The CHF 10,000 prize money will go towards developing the training tool further.
