Supporting the Mental Health of Apprentices - Remote Learning

9 December 2021

Managing mental health in the workplace is a challenging topic for businesses, and particularly those who employ apprentices. Australian mental health data tells us that young workers are at greater risk of experiencing poor mental health than the general population, which can have a direct impact on the workplace in the form of absenteeism, poor performance and turnover.

During this half day training, we will look at mental health from a number of different perspectives, providing a clear understanding of workplace obligations under privacy, disability discrimination, workplace relations and safety laws. You will learn how to effectively support and manage apprentices with mental health conditions as well as how to build a mentally healthy workplace that is both safe and productive.
