What is it about?

Early recognition and intervention is key to helping individuals affected by mental ill-health maintain their wellbeing. If mental ill-health is not recognised and effectively reduced it can cause significant harm to various aspects of the person’s life, such as, not being able to uphold work commitments and not maintaining important relationships.  

Of course, such consequences of distress should be addressed to help everyone thrive in their private as well as professional lives. However what are the indicators of such mental distress and what is the best course of action following recognition?

This short course has been developed by subject matter experts to particularly address these queries and to educate employees, employers, and students on mental ill-health recognition and intervention, as well as, associated workplace practice modifications.

In this course you will learn about:

  • The various forms and signs of potential distress (including physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioural and work related indicators)
  • The importance of intervention and how to individually help
  • The employee assistance program (EAP) and peer support programs
  • Modifications to workplace practices

Who is it for?

This course is ideal for anyone in the Australian workforce, HR officers, WHS supervisors, compliance officers, and those within an interest in Work Health and Safety (WHS).

Course Duration

Typically a learner may take between 2-4 hours to complete the online course, however, this may vary depending on prior skills and knowledge.
