Mental Health and Well-Being

Mental Health in the Workplace Training

Through iHR Australia’s Mental Ill Health and Well-Being in the Workplace Training, participants will understand the importance of a mentally healthy workplace. Participants will be able to identify behaviours and patterns of mental health in workplace environments and what actions can be taken to assist those affected.

These programs clarify what resilience is and how important resilience is to maintaining employee wellbeing and fulfilling their role. Designed and facilitated by Psychologists, our Mental Health in the Workplace Training is available at both employee and manager levels.

Managers undertaking training will understand what legislative requirements apply to mental health and wellbeing in the workplace as applicable to their role and responsibilities as a manager. The methods and techniques used to effectively deal with situations of mental un-wellness are also addressed to build skills and confidence in responding to an affected team member.

Responsibilities for employees are properly defined, with instructions on how to identify mental ill health, how to respond and what can be done to assist a fellow team member.

Mental Ill Health and Well-Being in the Workplace Training is available for all organisational members, including employees and managers. Our programs are available through on-site delivery, public training and eLearning.

What these programs cover:

  • Understand and comply with relevant legislative requirements;
  • Identify the indicators of a current period of mental ill health;
  • Identify the workplace risk factors which may lead to the development of or exacerbate a mental health condition;
  • Understand how to communicate about mental ill health;
  • Identify why resilience is important to the person and in the workplace; and
  • Identify ways to improve well-being and the ability to cope with challenges

Mental Health in the Workplace

Face-to-Face Training

iHR Australia's face-to-face training uses Workplace Reality Theatre where professional actors re-enact real workplace situations. This unique teaching methodology utilises storytelling and role plays to illustrate typical workplace behaviours. Participants find this highly engaging and helpful, encouraging them to discuss their thoughts and feelings, which in turn highlights core concepts and encourages learning. This methodology enables participants to recognise some elements in their own behaviour.

On Site Delivery

iHR Australia delivers training to organisations of all sizes across Australia, including both capital cities and regional towns. Our expert facilitators travel around the country as required to deliver Mental Health and Well-being Programs at your location and can customise the program to individual workplace requirements.

Public Training

Organisations can register participants in our Managing Mental Ill Health in the Workplace Training, which is delivered in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane, as well as some regional hubs.

Our Public Training provides the opportunity to network with other like-minded participants. The diversity of the training group allows for an interesting range of perspectives and experiences to be shared.

Lunch is provided during the day for participants for both programs, as well as morning and afternoon tea.

Online Training

iHR Australia also offers Mental Health in the Workplace Training online with eLearning programs available for both managers and employees. This method of training is ideal for organisations who may not find either the longer sessions or locations of face-to-face programs suitable. Our eLearning modules take 30-40 minutes to complete and can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection on computer, mobile or tablet. This is an excellent, low-cost alternative to face-to-face learning.
