2017 Sydney Workshop – Workplace Mental Health – Foundations of Early Intervention

2017 Sydney Workshop - Workplace Mental Health - Foundations of Early Intervention


Workplace Mental Health – Foundations of Early Intervention
This practical half day workshop builds confidence and skills and covers the early intervention essentials that all staff need to know when it comes to workplace mental health issues. This includes knowing how to identify early warning signs, how to approach someone, how to have a conversation with someone, and how (and where) to refer someone to access help in the face of workplace mental health concerns.

Rather than focusing on types of diagnosis or awareness raising alone, this hands-on workshop delivered by CommuniCorp’s senior workplace psychologists, builds the critical foundational capabilities for people to make a genuine difference to the psychological health of others in the workplace. This workshop is the perfect stepping stone to other workplace mental health training, such as Developing Psychologically Safe and Healthy Workplaces, Managing Staff with Mental Health Concerns and Psychosocial Risk Assessment.

Learning Outcomes for Workplace Mental Health – Foundations of Early Intervention:

  • The importance of workplace mental health and wellbeing including: differentiating workplace versus community approaches to mental health.
