Mental Health Issues at Work: How to have the conversation

Ever felt unsure about how to discuss mental health with a colleague you are concerned about or manage?

  • Dates:Nov 21
  • Time(s):9:00am to 12:00pm
  • Venue:The Platform, L3, 256 Adelaide Terrace, Perth

Details

  • Type:Workshops,Courses
  • Industry:Finance,Leadership,Education,Mining,Oil & Gas,Engineering,Human Resources
  • Hosted By:Curtin University

Description

One of the key pillars of the  Thrive at Work framework is  Mitigate illness, and an illness organisations are increasingly having to manage is mental ill health. When done well, organisations identify employees who are experiencing mental ill health, support employees who are impaired to get well again, and assist those who have been unwell to return to the workplace.
 
Privacy, confidentiality and uncertainty about what to say without causing upset or offence are some of the reasons that stop us having difficult conversations about mental health.

Likewise, there are barriers for employees who may find it difficult to raise concerns about mental health and wellbeing: fear of being misunderstood or their job being under threat, stigma and myths about mental ill health, etc.

The workshop will provide an easy to use framework and simple, practical tips for people in workplaces who need to respond to someone they are concerned about.

It is suitable for managers, supervisors, HR staff, CEOs, OHS staff and anyone who wants to learn how to understand how to respond appropriately when someone has a mental health issue.

What to expect
This masterclass will:

  • Provide an overview of the reasons we need to look out for people and how to identify someone who might be struggling at work.
  • Discuss the importance of knowing your people and fostering high quality connections.
  • Identify the barriers to having a conversation with someone who may have a mental health issue
  • Identify the challenges for someone to speak up about their mental health issues in the workplace.
  • Provide some guidelines for preparing, undertaking and bringing courage to a conversation.
  • Discuss and understand the importance of empathy.

The workshop will be interactive and participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences and have Q & A time.
