Workplace Training

Organisational training and workshops to help staff to better support their employees, clients and customers.

Workshop: Managing mental health in the workplace

Many people will experience mental health issues at some stage in their lives, including in the workplace. These people may need additional support at work during this time.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of how individuals are affected by common mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, stress, mood disorders and suicide ideation. The workshop will also detail and discuss how workplaces can respond appropriately and assist people with these issues.


In this workshop, participants will learn about:

  • common mental health issues and how they affect people
  • indicators of mental ill-health
  • how staff can support colleagues experiencing mental health issues
  • how to appropriately refer colleagues or staff to access support services and assistance.
