Would you know how to assist a co-worker who was experiencing a mental health problem?
In Australia, 1 in 5 people will experience mental illness in any given year. Lawyers suffer from higher rates of depression, anxiety, substance use problems and stress than the general population.
In this Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course, you will learn techniques for:
- recognising the signs and symptoms of a mental health problem or crisis,
- approaching a colleague or friend to have a conversation about their mental health; and
- informing them about the support and resources available to assist.
The key to better mental health outcomes is early recognition of issues and a safe and supportive workplace. MHFA training is recommended for staff at all levels of seniority and across all departments. This course is tailored to legal workplaces and the workshop sessions are facilitated by experienced legal professionals.
- The virtual live workshops for this course will be held via video conferencing on Tuesday 5 September 2023 and Thursday 7 September 2023 from 1.30pm to 4.00pm AEST each day.
- You must complete the six-hour online (eLearning) component before attending the first workshop.
- The instructor-led virtual sessions are live meetings conducted over the internet using video conferencing software. The instructor needs to see and hear you for you to participate. Therefore, you must have access to a camera and a microphone.
The eLearning component of this course is supported by legalsuper.
