MENTAL HEALTH WORKPLACE BLUEPRINT

Mental Health Movement has worked with some of Australia’s leading companies, delivering various mental health awareness initiatives. During these initiatives we have presented to just over 55,000 individuals from various companies within Australia. During these initiatives Mental Health Movement conducted 2 surveys. The purpose of the survey’s was to gather and correlate real life data first hand from both frontline employees and managers, supervisors and frontline leaders within the Australian workforce.
This data would give us a clearer understanding of the awareness and education levels of frontline employees, managers, supervisors and frontline leaders within the Australian workplace and the contributing factors to poor mental health. 
From these results we developed the Mental Health Workplace Blueprint. The Mental Health Workplace Blueprint meets the needs of the individual and workforce, improving mental health literacy, mental health management, mental health support and improving help seeking behaviors. 

The Mental Health Workplace Blueprint consists of 4 stages that focus on improving mental health awareness, mental health literacy, mental health management and mental health support within your workplace. The objective being to build resilience and empower employees, managers, supervisors and frontline leaders to better identify, manage and support mental health and its challenges within the workplace.   

Stage 1: Awareness

POWER OF STORY:  The power of story is going to be one of the catalysts for change in the mental health space. Story telling is something that reminds us that we are all real. Connecting through the power of story will remove the negative stigma attached to mental health and mental illness and change the individual perception towards it.  6 KEYS TO IMPROVED MENTAL HEALTH OUTCOMES:  This section of the presentation focuses on clear, simple effective ways of planting the mental health seed, starting the conversation, giving individuals ways to check in and be accountable and giving an understanding of how to build and develop resilience and seek help if needed.

EAP PROMOTION:  Your company EAP (employment assistance program) will be positively promoted and re-promoted through various promotional materials (flyers, cards, video’s, presentations ect).  A high percentage of employees do not trust the EAP and believe that they report directly to the company sharing things about the individual and their struggles. The standard EAP uptake is between 4% – 10% and is a reflection of that perception. The EAP is a fantastic resource that should be used and the way in which it is promoted and supported in the workplace is crucial in it continuing to be a consistent support network to the workforce.

Stage 2: Education

WORKSHOP 1 : MENTAL HEALTH LITERACY ( 45 minutes)  This workshop goes into detail in regards to mental health education. This workshop will work through activities, promote discussions and provide clear effective information that will set a very strong  mental health literacy foundation for the participants involved.

WORKSHOP 2: MENTAL HEALTH MANAGEMENT (90 minutes)  This workshop will provide tools, strategies and scaffolds on identifying the signs and symptoms of a mental health issue within the workplace. Providing a better understanding of the contributing factors of poor mental health and how to manage what is in the employees and employers control, potentially developing and creating a more mentally healthy workplace environment. It will provide the skills to start and hold the conversations around mental health, providing the tools to provide consistent support and link to other supports relevant to the individual and situation. The workshop showcases activities of real life work scenarios where the participants will use the MHWB support scaffold and navigate through supporting the individual and gaining a positive outcome.

WORKSHOP 3: RESILIENCE (45 minutes) This workshop will give a real life understanding of resilience. Understanding what it is, what it looks like, how to develop it, how to use it and how to apply it to the real world. This workshop will provide a resilience reflection cycle that has taken years of study and education to develop. This resilience reflection cycle can be used and applied to any and every situation in life. This workshop will cover both individual and team resilience. Resilience is a key ingredient in striving to be the best version of yourself. An individual or a team that is adaptable and can persevere through change challenge and adversity is going to be more successful in every aspect of life.

We really enjoyed working with Dan and Mental Health Movement over the five presentations he did at Veolia NSW.  His story is very powerful.  We would thoroughly recommend Dan and Mental Health Movement to any organisation to positively influence their workforce.  We hope to work with Dan again in the future

Dan’s flexibility allowed us to work with the crews start times to deliver his presentation to the 450 people we have here on site.  The presentations were well received by all crews and his knowledge and passion kept the audience’s attention for the hour the presentation went for. The crews and staff spoke about the presentation for weeks afterwards which will see us look at using Dan’s services again in the future.
