Research Toolkit Limited was commissioned by the Yorkshire Health Improvement Partnership to evaluate the effectiveness of their mental health awareness raising programme in May 2010, with an emphasis on its impact on the attitudes and behaviour of line managers once they returned to work.
The evaluation was survey based, with all participants on the programme asked to complete questionnaires immediately before starting their training, and immediately after finishing it. For those that were willing to take part, we carried out a follow-up survey two to three months after the course had taken place. Between June 2010 and January 2011 we collected a total of 603 paper survey
returns from 48 separate Skills for Line Managers courses across Yorkshire and
North Lincolnshire. This report presents the summarised results of our survey work.
