Project Description

Mental Health Awareness

In order for employees to successfully manage their mental health, they firstly need to understand it.  Our awareness sessions seek to provide participants the basic information required to be able to:

  • Articulate the definition of mental health (it’s not the same as mental disorder)

  • Understand and challenge the stigma associated with mental health in our society

  • Understand the protective factors to good mental health

  • Identify signs and symptoms in the event one might be mentally unwell

  • Acknowledge the benefits of early help seeking and challenge the barriers to help seeking

  • Have a knowledge of the services available to support them
