What’s online mental health training for business all about?

Mental health is not a dirty word…

Mental health issues are on the rise, and none of us are immune. Mental health is not the same as a mental disorder or illness - all of us have mental health and have felt the ups and downs of life. That’s called being human. Every now and then life can knock us down a peg or two and feeling like we are in a hole is totally normal BUT it is not normal to stay down there for too long. The longer we are down there, the harder it is to get out. The thing is, some of us need some help getting out.

As an employer or leader you care about your people, but maybe you are just not sure what the heck you are meant to do? Let us help you out here. We’ve got your back. We have put together an online programme that is simple, and convenient to complete and doesn’t require you to take time off work. Our training is practical and simple, but comprehensive enough to equip your business to protect and support the mental wellbeing of your people - and as a byproduct, limit staff-related interruptions to business as usual!

Is this programme going to work for your kind of business?

This programme is very flexible, and was designed for businesses that:

  • are small to medium sized

  • operate in the construction, agriculture or trade industries

  • don’t necessarily have the HR or H&S structures or resources to implement mental health processes

  • don’t have the time to learn a heap of complicated stuff

  • have no or limited previous experience and knowledge about mental health or how to support it in the workplace

  • need an easy to use and convenient way to get up to speed with managing mental health responsibly in their business
