Event description

Description

Organisations are regularly challenged by the task of managing workers with mental health concerns; with depression predicted to be the second most significant cause of suffering worldwide by 2020 (BeyondBlue) it is essential that a proactive focus is placed upon supporting and managing workers with their mental health. Poor mental health costs Australian businesses over $10.9 billion each year (Price Waterhouse Coopers) with workers experiencing non-diagnosed mental health concerns likely to require 3-4 additional days of sick leave each month (BeyondBlue). This has a significant implication for all organisations from a cultural, productivity, operational and financial perspective. Pleasingly, every dollar spent on proactively addressing mental health in the workplace has been shown to equate to a direct return on investment of $2.30 (Price Waterhouse Coopers).

P2 Group’s Mental Health Workshop aims to upskill your executives, managers and supervisors in the identification and management of mental health concerns within the workplace through practical case studies, skills building and the provision of effective tools. P2 Group’s highly interactive 2 to 3 hour workshops focus on:

  • What is mental health – promoting a healthy attitude
  • Prevalence of mental health concerns
  • What is mental illness – understanding of the spectrum of mental health concerns and their impact upon workers
  • Understanding and recognising the early warning signs and symptoms
  • How to help within the boundaries of your work role
  • Common workplace situations and helpful responses – what to do and the tools which can assist
  • Legal and organisation requirements for reasonable adjustments and how these can be achieved
  • Understanding stress – when it’s good and when it’s bad and it’s impacts
  • Strategies for managing stress and assisting workers to manage their own stress
  • Addressing the stigma of mental health and stress
  • Developing mental health resilience and practical skills and tools to enhance personal wellbeing and the wellbeing of workers
