Mental health and wellbeing

Promoting positive mental health benefits both your business and your employees. Build a thriving, productive workplace while meeting your legal obligations.

Mental health and wellbeing

How mentally healthy is your workplace? Do your managers have the skills they need to recognise and respond effectively when an employee is struggling? Do you understand the legal requirements that relate to workplace mental health?

Our expert consultants have the skills and experience to help you effectively manage mental health in your workplace. We offer a comprehensive range of mental health consulting and training services that can be tailored to your individual needs.

Our consulting services

Mental health risk management
Mental health risk management

Mental health in the workplace is the OHS issue of our time. However, few employers take a systematic approach towards regularly identifying, assessing, and controlling mental health hazards. Our team of expert consultants can work with you to develop and deliver simple and effective tools to manage this complex area of risk.

Mental health policy and strategy

Many employers want to incorporate positive mental health into their HR policies and business strategy but are unsure of where to begin. Our consultants can get you started with a tailored approach that meets the needs of your business. We can assist with  policy development, strategy design and communication with senior leaders.

Our mental health training courses leave no stone unturned. We examine every aspect of mental health in the workplace including:

  • How to recognise the early warning signs of distress in one of your employees
  • How to intervene effectively without compromising your employee’s privacy
  • How to have a mental health conversation and manage the possible directions it can take
  • Crisis management and suicide prevention
  • How to engage with treating medical practitioners and independent assessors
  • Managing the impact on other team members
  • Your legal obligations: how mental health interacts with disability discrimination, workers’ compensation and industrial relations law
  • Providing a psychologically safe workplace: understanding mental health hazards and how to apply the risk management methodology as you do to physical hazards

We offer training both in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, public courses and onsite training delivered at your workplace. The majority of our courses can also be delivered as virtual workshops as required.
