Event description
Join us for a series of mental health workshops hosted by the Emergency Services Foundation and facilitated in collaboration with OzHelp.

About this Event

The Mental Health Matters one-day program hosted by ESF will bring together volunteers from across Victoria’s emergency service sector to discuss how we can better promote and support good mental health in an emergency services environment.

The workshops are supported by the Victorian Government and will be facilitated by experienced mental health professionals from OzHelp alongside guests who will share their lived experience of working in the emergency services sector.

The one-day event is designed to provide participants with a deeper understanding of the many factors that influence our mental health and wellbeing; educating on how to apply these learnings in caring for ourselves and our colleagues in a volunteer team environment.

  • Able to recognise early indicators of distress in themselves
  • Able to recognise early indicators of distress in colleagues
