Event description
Part 2 of a two-way impact workshop that is structured to be effective as a stand-alone session as well.

About this event

What would it be like for you to examine your workplace for psychological safety? Would you like what you see? In part 2 of Two Way Impact, we explore the helpful and harmful ways the work environment affects people struggling with mental illness.

Australian statistics show that an average of 9 people every day die by suicide, plus it is estimated 65,000 suicide attempts are made per year. To quote Lifeline, "behind every number is a human life".

This free workshop event aims to go beyond a general awareness of mental illness in the workplace by drawing on the lived experience perspective, including:

• Mental illness – A brief outline of the bio/psycho/social approach.

• Covert discrimination or accidental ignorance – Water cooler wars.

• Lived experience insight - Supporting staff before, during and after a mental health hospital admission.

• Medication and side effects - The changing mind and body.

• Communication and compassion – Skilful speech and healthy boundaries.

• Lifestyle interventions - Actively improving workforce mental health.

• Help and resources – Create meaningful change.

About Angelica Johnson, Founder and CEO, Instrumental Yoga.

Combining qualifications in Community Services, Yoga Teacher Training and Non-Violent Communication, Angelica's most powerful credential is her recovery from addiction and mental illness.

She founded Instrumental Yoga in 2020, practical customised yoga for mental health and addiction recovery that is complimentary to clinical care and enhances treatments. It is a peer support service that has expanded from in home individual support to on site group programs for in/out patient services and rehabilitation settings- clients and staff, first responders, carers and community, the workplace, corporate events and special occasions.

Angelica is on track to becoming an authority in the recovery space with her compelling mission: Empower people to access and value their own inner resources for greater recovery and quality of life, and increase the understanding and use of effective lifestyle interventions such as yoga, in clinical settings.

Although her prevention work seriously outlines some harsh realities, Angelica inspires hope with solution focused practical information that will change the way you think about mental illness and addiction. Her warmth, wisdom and infectious energy is what propels her message from thought provoking to action taking.
