About the Program

An ideal introduction to the topic of mental health, this program is suitable for all team types and perfect for larger audiences. Understanding Mental Health is the starting point for organisations looking to increase staff awareness of mental health and promote understanding and compassion around mental illness. The engaging, practical content explores ways to recognise signs and symptoms, and how to respond to someone who may be experiencing mental health challenges.


At different times in our lives, we all need help to get back on our feet.

When someone is struggling with a mental health condition, our role is to guide them to the available support networks.

This might involve getting professional help, like going to a doctor for an assessment or going to talk to a psychologist.

At work they may be able to access their Employee Assistance Service or talk to their manager about some temporary changes, such as flexible working hours.

Reaching out to family and friends or connecting with a community of people can be a tremendous help. Sometimes, just having someone to talk to, or getting practical help with things like grocery shopping or laundry can really reduce the pressure.

As well as getting help from others, there are many helpful personal choices someone can make to get better. This includes eating healthily, getting some exercise most days and sleeping seven to nine hours every night.
