Is this training for you?

In Australia 25% of workers take time off each year for stress-related reasons.

According to the World Health Organisation, mental health is “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

This program is aimed at supervisors or staff wanting to build awareness of mental health, wellbeing, suicide and domestic violence. Participants will be equipped with the skills to respond to others who are struggling in a way that is non-judgemental and respectful.
