Your mental health at work

Join the 5,600 people trained so far. Of those surveyed, 99% said they would recommend the training and 92% now have a stronger knowledge of managing their mental health at work.

In partnership with the Black Dog Institute, we are providing free mental health training to individuals in workplaces across NSW.

Stressed with work or dealing with depression? Can you tell the difference? A change in behaviour or performance in yourself or a colleague, could be a sign of mental ill-health.

Understanding and supporting someone who may be struggling with their mental health or reaching out for support yourself can help aid recovery.

Leading mental health research organisation Black Dog Institute is providing mental health training for individuals, to help you identify warning signs of mental ill-health, understand what support is available, and learn techniques to improve wellbeing.

This training is designed for all individuals in the workplace, including:

This training has been developed by experts to give you the knowledge and skills to:

  • Understand the prevalence of mental ill-health and its impact
