Mental Health Essentials

- $39.00 – $49.00

Do you want to  feel more confident to help someone who might be experiencing a mental health problem?

​Do you want your team to have a solid introduction to mental health, and to feel confident to support one another in the workplace?

​If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, then this workshop is for you or your workplace.

​The incidence of mental health problems in Australia, and around the world, is already high, but after COVID19, we are seeing a spike in people experiencing mental health problems right now, and will continue to over the next 12-24 months.

​One in five Australians will experience a mental health issue in any given year and 75% of people between the ages of 16 and 86 will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime.

​This means that 20% of our friends, family, staff, colleagues and people around us will experience a mental health issue this year.

​And if you have young people in your life or your workplace, the prevalence is higher. Did you know that the average onset age for Anxiety is 15 years old?

​Most people say they don’t know how to help when they think it might be necessary, but the skills are easy to learn.

​Mental Health issues affect a persons life in many ways, from very subtly, to life changing affects.  But, with some basic knowledge and a set of skills behind us, we can confidently and competently assist someone when they experience a mental health issue.

​What we’ll cover

​In this workshop, we take a look at mental health in some detail, and introduce to you some easy ways to build your skills in the area of mental health.

We’ll look at…

​What mental health is

  • ​The mental health continuum
  • ​Some facts and stats about mental health in Australia
