Recognising and Responding to Mental Health Issues in the Workplace.

Professional Development Workshop
It is important to know how to respond to distress in others in an appropriate and empathetic way. This workshop can help managers, supervisors and staff gain the skills to effectively communicate with others to improve their wellbeing. Staff who are confident and capable first responders to mental health and addiction issues are essential to any organisation.

Improving the health and safety of your staff means taking reasonable steps to manage risks for both their physical and mental wellbeing. Mental distress is common, with approximately four in five New Zealand adults having experience of mental distress personally or among people they know.
