1 Workplace Mental Health essentials Practical Identification, Early Intervention & Management Skills Training

2 Mental health and wellbeing are significant issues to contend with in the modern working environment. WHS/OH&S legislation means that all workplaces have a legal responsibility to provide psychologically safe and healthy workplaces and there is substantial research to support the potential return on investment of proactive initiatives in this area. Awareness raising, basic EAP provisions and community based mental health approaches are insufficient to realise the benefits of a psychologically safe and healthy workplace. In addition to effective workplace systems, policies and procedures, all staff, managers, and executives need to have the skills and confidence to be able to recognise, respond to, and (dependent on role) manage a broad spectrum of workplace mental health related matters as they arise. CommuniCorp s practical programs recognise the psychosocial, WHS, commercial and productivity implications of mental health and wellbeing within the workplace and that good work is good for people. Our workshops have been developed with adult learning principles in mind, ensuring that all are highly practical, interactive, role relevant and augmented by learning support resources. With delivery exclusively by expert senior psychologists, our courses cover the practicalities of how to respond to suspected or known mental health concerns; referral and support options; confidentiality matters; return to work issues; psychosocial risk factors; maintaining and managing staff in the workplace; and key legislation such as WHS, Disability Discrimination and SRC Acts. More than just information, these programs teach people the practical, real world skills they need in order to make a difference to the emotional wellbeing of others. EXECUTIVE BRIEFING: One Hour The executive seminar provides a high level overview of why workplace mental health is so important, and exactly what Executive staff members need to know and do to make a positive impact in this important area. Why it matters the human and financial cost and legislative obligations The impact mental illness has in the workplace Psychologically Safe and Healthy Workplace Framework Your responsibilities to identify and manage psychosocial risk The importance of senior leadership in creating a psychologically safe and healthy workplace culture Key workplace roles and responsibilities How to support employees early intervention and support strategies Communicorp Group
