Managing for team wellbeing: free training course for business leaders in Melton and Brimbank

  10 March 2021  NWMPHN Suicide Prevention team   

North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network is providing free training opportunities to managers and supervisors of businesses located in Melton and Brimbank. The training will help leaders incorporate effective wellbeing leadership in their teams.

The Managing for Team Wellbeing training is an interactive, facilitated workshop coordinated by Black Dog Institute, a world-leader in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness. The workshop is delivered by experienced clinical psychologists and is available online.

People leaders play a pivotal role in fostering the wellbeing of their teams through the behaviours they model. A successful leader also needs the ability to observe and act when they notice that team members are struggling.
Leaders also play a key role in successfully integrating team members back into work after a period of sickness or absence. This valuable workshop helps us begin to remove any stigma associated with mental health and seeking mental health support.

Participants will:

  • gain insight into the prevalence of mental health issues, changes in behaviour in teams and what these things mean
  • develop the skills to have effective conversations around stress, mental health and wellbeing
  • understand the resources available to them and develop the skills they need to support team members at work, or assist in timely return to work after sickness or absence
  • recognise the behaviours that effective managers, supervisors and other people leaders use to promote wellbeing within their teams.

Course date

The training session will be held online from 9:00am – 12:00pm on Tuesday, 30 March 2021.
