Mental health and wellbeing
Mental health and wellbeing is perhaps the most significant health and safety issue in the workplace today. Produced in 2020, this 13-part series is a comprehensive guide to dealing with this very topic.

The first eight modules provide effective tips for managing mental health and wellbeing for the manager or supervisor. The final five modules detail how workers can assist in maintaining a psychologically healthy workplace. Furthermore, it also details how to manage their own mental health.

This 13-part mental health and wellbeing training programme will arm your people with a myriad of ideas. In addition, they will learn skills on how best to deal with mental health and wellbeing.

Aim of the mental health training video series

In December 2016, the National Mental Health Commission stated that the cost of mental ill-health in Australia each year was around $4,000 per person, or $60 billion in total.

It's a well-known fact that when workers are not feeling the best, they can't work at their best. So, maintaining a positive approach to psychological health and safety, it just makes good business sense.

An essential ingredient to creating and maintaining a mentally healthy and well workplace is the focus of all workers to care for each other and the skills of management to make this happen.

This training programme sets out easy to follow guidelines for managers to create a mentally healthy work environment and a culture where their team is effectively identifying and helping to manage psychosocial hazards in the workplace.

It also details several coping skills for workers when faced with change or stressful situations.

It achieves this by focusing on three main areas:
1. Promoting positive mental well-being,
2. Protecting workers from mental injury and illness, and
3. Addressing mental injury and illness.
 
Whatever type of workplace you are employed at, mental health will be an issue your workplace will be faced with not just this year but years to come.

Our range of mental health training videos are designed to educate all members of your workplace on the importance of maintaining and monitoring their own mental health and help them to understand how various factors (both internal and external) can influence it.
