Resource Minds is out there, on the road and on-site, making a difference.
Mental Health for Leaders Training Workshop
Delivered (usually on-site) by appropriately trained and qualified RRMH staff to managers, supervisors, shift bosses, WH&S officers and those in positions of responsibility in the workplace.
The training workshop is designed to assist participants:
- Increase their awareness and understanding of basic mental health as well as the risks to mental health especially following a critical incident
- To be effective “first-responders” to a mental health crisis in the workplace until qualified, professional help is available
- Identify support services and networks available for themselves and their workforce
- Identify any gaps (in regard to mental health) within existing operations procedures
- Improve the culture of their worksite by reducing stigma and encouraging a positive approach to mental health.
Participants are provided with a useful handbook for future reference and a Certificate of Completion.
This interactive and practical solution-based training workshop is not about professional counseling or psychological debriefing.
It is about:
A – Assessing the risk
S – Supporting the person
K – Knowing where and how to get professional help.
