Tip of the Week

Published: Wednesday 19th August 2015

The Mental Health Awareness seminar aims to raise awareness on common mental health issues.

A large number of Australian adults will suffer from some form of common mental health problem. One in five women and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetime. Therefore a friend, family member or work colleague may experience mental health difficulties at some stage in their life and will be in need of support. This presentation will equip participants with strategies and tips for providing support to those close to us.

Presentation Outline
  • Understanding common mental health issues
  • Practical ways to support significant others with depression and anxiety
  • Depression/Anxiety/Mood Disorders
