Presented by Psychologist Troy Macris.
This workshop offers employees an inspiring introduction to the topic of mental health and an exploration of the most effective ways we can maintain good mental health and deal with stress and challenges.
This workshop is suitable for any employee who would like to learn more about the topic of mental health, and how they can better care for their mental health.
We often think mental illness only affects a small number of people. However, the truth is that 45% of Australian adults will experience a mental illness at some point in their life and one in five Australian adults will experience a mental illness in any given year. Anyone can develop a mental illness, and no one is completely immune. Job stress can have a major impact on people’s mental health and is one of the leading causes of occupational disease and injury.
All employers are legally required to provide a mentally healthy and safe workplace. Doing this not only protects workers from psychological harm and positively enhances their mental health, but it also makes good business sense.
Research has found that every dollar spent on improving the mental health of workers yields close to a 500% return in improved productivity through increased work output and reduced sick leave.
Participants will receive take-home materials which summarise the main points from the workshop.

Troy believes it is essential to educate people about mental health as it will not only equip them with the tools to better cope with stress and enjoy fulfilling lives, but ultimately it will help reduce the likelihood of them developing mental health problems in the first place.
