Leadership Mental Health Workshops

About workshops

The workshops are for leaders who work in any industry. The knowledge and skills learnt within the workshops are transferrable to different work environments. Leaders can include business owners, worksite supervisors, health and safety practitioners, or leaders within an organisation who have an influence on other individuals or teams. 

I am currently delivering leadership workshops to the Building Wellness Trust. The trust was developed with the aim of reducing suicide among construction workers within the Taranaki region.

Overview 

The major focus of this workshop is to equip leaders with the knowledge and skills to support mental health within the workplace. The first level of this workshop is ideal for people who have some knowledge of mental health but would like to learn more. Level one of the workshops aims to provide leaders and supervisors with increased knowledge of depression and anxiety, tips for engaging workers in conversations about help-seeking and mental health, and education on suicide prevention. Level two and three of the workshops take a deeper look into mental health covering topics such as substance abuse, supporting workers who are suicidal, promotion of a positive mental health culture within the workplace, anger and depression, self-care, and practical skills for starting conversations about mental health within work meetings. Level two and three of the workshops explore leadership and employee wellbeing.
