Support for Managers

Organisations, managers and individuals all have different roles and responsibilities when it comes to supporting staff and managing psychosocial risk.

On this page you will find links to useful resources and services which are targeted at the manager level, including HR, project and country managers.

If you are a manager who would like to organise some support for your team (such as psychological preparation for assignment, counselling or debriefing), please see Psychosocial Support.
