Project Description

Mental Health Education

Not only is awareness of one’s mental health important, it’s also key that employees know how to identify risk within themselves and others and possess comprehensive strategies to ensure their ongoing fitness for work in relation to their psychological state is managed.

In comparison to our awareness training, our education program focuses more specifically on skill development in the areas of managing individual risk.

Through this education program we aim to assist employees with:

  • Increased understanding of understanding of mental health and mental health problems

  • Increased awareness of their own mental health state (through assessment tools)

  • Identification of signs and symptoms of mental health problems

  • Awareness and skills in how to assist others with mental health concerns

  • Knowledge of preventative factors to managing mental health including practical tools and strategies

This education program is complemented by a comprehensive training manual which participants keep for their own personal reference.
