    During this session we'll:


    Mention first-aid and most of us think of resuscitation or dealing with injuries or burns. But what should you do if you encounter someone having a panic attack, behaving aggressively (perhaps because of alcohol or drugs), or appearing suicidal?

    In any year, more than one in five Australians over the age of 16 have a common diagnosable mental illness.

    Workshop participants will learn the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, how to help, and, importantly, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective. The course takes a broad preventive approach, teaching how to recognise the signs that some common mental health problems might be developing or are in their early stages.

    Developing mental health problems covered:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Psychosis
    • Substance misuse

    In the wake of recent events, it is more important than ever to provide emotional support for Educators. This 2-hour in-house workshop has been designed by mental health experts and ECE leaders. This workshop will help you identify the signs and triggers of mental health issues, as well as develop skills for responding confidently when supporting Educators during these times.

      Supporting Educators’ Mental Health is a 2-hour in-house program customised specifically for leadership teams in ECE and OSHC.

      After the workshop you will be able to:

      Keep everyone happy and health by creating an environment of psychological safety

      De-escalate situations to ensure children and staff are kept safe
