Event Details

Course Outline:

The issue of mental health has become a topic of interest in Australia over the last decade. The increasing complexity and pace of modern life means that balancing the day to day demands of work, home and family can be very challenging. The international pandemic has further stretched our resources. This workshop will explore what we mean by good mental health and how we can nurture it in our day-to-day lives.

The workshop will cover:
1. An overview of psychological stress, how it develops, and how it can affect our health and wellbeing

2. How to recognise the signs of psychological distress, both in ourselves and others
3. an exploration of the skills required to maintain good mental health. This will include practical day to day strategies that workshop participants can immediately begin to use;

4. A discussion of current issues: what is adding to the stress of individuals, what is minimising stress for individuals, and how they can improve the situation
