Mental Health Education
How prepared is your workplace to support someone with mental health issues?
The flow on from education around mental health impacts the staff satisfaction and support in the workplace. Every $1 invested in mental health education has a return on investment of $2.30.
Have you thought about attending or having a workplace mental health training?
Let me tell you a little story of some of the unexpected outcomes when providing mental health training in your office.
We were asked to provide mental health education in a workplace after a tragedy; the staff were struggling through their individual emotions but ready to learn and improve their workplace culture. Throughout the two-day Mental Health First Aid course a safe space was created for colleagues to share personal stories and create new connections. The staff were challenged with their ways of thinking about workplace relations, client relations and work life balance.
After only two days we saw staff empowered to take control of their own and their loved one’s mental health. We also saw colleagues having better relationships, more support in the workplace, new perspectives around boundaries and a much more positive and collaborative workplace culture.
A range of accredited training, workshops and specialised sessions are available from our
professional and passionate staff.
Is a must for every workplace. A two day course where participants learn how to assist adults who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. This course increases meaningful conversations, improves employee wellbeing and gives employees confidence to ask for support when needed.
