Supporting Educators’ Mental Health

Create a mentally healthy team by destigmatizing mental health. 

Do you know how to respond if a staff member is having an emotional crisis and it’s affecting their work? Working with Educators who are depressed or experiencing anxiety can be difficult. This workshop gives leaders the first-aid skills to be better able to support Educators experiencing mental health concerns.

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.

In any year, more than one in five Australians over the age of 16 have a common diagnosable mental illness. Leaders have a critical role to play, both as first responders and as promoters of good mental health.

In 2-hours your leaders will learn:

  • how to identify the early signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions
  • the possible causes or risk factors for these mental health problems;
  • the importance of early intervention and how to speak to co-workers if you are concerned about their mental health.
  • how to give appropriate initial help and support to someone experiencing depression or anxiety and
  • how to create a culture of psychological safety and an acceptance of mental health conditions.

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

 

 

After the workshop your leaders will be able to:

  • Keep everyone happy and healthy by creating an environment of psychological safety.
  • Support your team and respond appropriately to a mental health crisis.
  • De-escalate situations to ensure children and staff are kept safe and
  • Feel confident when providing emotional support.
