At ACU we have concern and consideration for the wellbeing of our colleagues and students, which is reflected in the University’s mission, and goes hand-in-hand with the aims of Mental Health Month.
Staff are invited to attend a video conference on October 16 to gain a greater understanding of mental health conditions and how to provide support.
Mental Health Month is a national campaign held each year which centres around World Mental Health Day on 10 October. One in five Australians aged 16-85 will experience a mental illness in any given year, which means this an issue that impacts on most us in some way - either individually, through our loved ones or in our working lives.
Mental Health Awareness Video Conference
AccessEAP will be conducting an interactive video-conference, to provide participants with an understanding of:
Common mental health conditions
What is helpful for a person with a mental health condition
What could be less helpful
How to support a colleague with a mental health condition
Session date: Thursday 16 October 2014
Session time: 12.00pm – 1.00pm (ADST)
