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.

In this workshop, you will learn to identify and apply practical strategies to improve your emotional intelligence skills with a focus on your self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal, decision-making, and stress management that we encounter every day in our personal lives and the workplace.

Everyone has emotions and you can improve your ability to recognize them in others and yourself and adjust them accordingly. These skills are essential in all workplaces especially for those in roles that require the provision of care, teamwork and leadership.

Join us for this workshop being held over two days on Monday 25 November and Monday 2 December 2019.

This is a four-part workshop:

  • An online self-assessment. 
  • A one-on-one online session with Dr Nigel Gribble.
  • Two half-day workshops at Curtin St Georges Terrace.

Studies have shown that people with advanced emotional intelligence skills will have better job performance and leadership skills.

This workshop is suited to leaders, managers and any staff wishing to up-skill on the fundamentals of emotional intelligence in the workplace and in their personal lives.

If you wish to increase productivity, have efficient meetings, build team resilience and less overall stress then register now.

Workplace Relations in a Modern Workplace

A masterclass designed for those who need practical knowledge on everyday issues in employee relations.

  • Dates:12 March 2020
  • Time(s):9am to 4pm
  • Venue:Curtin St Georges Terrace

Details

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

Description

As modern workplaces grow increasingly complex, organisations must ensure that they maintain their knowledge of workplace and employee relations.

Australia’s Fair Work Ombudsman recently delivered celebrity chef George Calombaris a $200,000 ‘contrition’ fine for underpaying more than 500 of his current and former employees a total of $7.8 million.

That well-publicised case highlighted that Australia’s industrial relations landscape is complex and precarious. It is particularly tricky for organisations that lack in-house IR practitioners and employment lawyers.

Our one-day masterclass, is designed to address challenges faced by those in corporate, non-profit, local government, consultancy along with SME owners in all sectors – HR professionals in organisations without discrete IR expertise would also find this masterclass highly valuable.
