Mental Health Awareness Month
This October, we proudly teamed up with several organisations to help us deliver a variety of initiatives to our workforce to support Mental Health Awareness Month:
- A Big Blue Morning Tea was hosted to have a conversation about mental health and raise funds for Beyond Blue.
- The Rosewood Centre will host several sessions to help increase awareness and provide useful tips for employees to support others in the workplace.
- Caddie Marshall MBA RN CM Grad Cert OHS will deliver Mental Health First Aid training as a 2-day program and refresher courses to new and emerging leaders. During her visits, she will also be holding multiple Mindfulness Sessions to help with stress management techniques.
- LivingWorks Australia “Start” Online Suicide Prevention Training will be accessible for all employees.
