Knowledge of Mental Illness and how to work with someone experiencing a Mental Illness or a Mental Health Crisis will:

  • Support you to create a safe and healthy workplace
  • Be a first step toward developing mental health strategies for your workplace
  • Provide participants with an understanding of mental illness
  • Provide participants with an ability to support a person developing a mental illness or having a mental health crisis.

Mental Health conditions are common:

  • 45% of Australians between the ages of 16 and 85 experience a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime
  • 20% of Australians will be experiencing a mental health condition in any 12 month period
  • The impact of Mental Health conditions is measured as the total cost of absenteeism, presenteeism and compensation claims estimated in one year across industries - This is estimated to be 14.9 Billion per year
  • A report prepared by PwC indicates that the return on Investment for actions taken to improve mental health outcomes is 2.3; that is, for every dollar invested in Mental Health programs a company will receive a return of $2.30.

E-MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
 


Online treatment programs may be used alone or in a combination with face-to-face therapy and/or medications.  They are useful for people who cannot or will not access face-to-face therapy to provide support for people waiting for face-to-face therapy. 
The evidence suggests that online cognitive behavioural therapy (e-CBT) can:
- work as well as face-to-face CBT for many people with mild to moderate anxiety and depression
- be useful in resilience building for people vulnerable to these disorders
