Beyond Blue’s ‘Mental health in the workplace’ toolbox talk training package is designed to equip anyone managing staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver mental health toolbox talks to their team. It aims to encourage conversations about mental health in the workplace, reduce workplace stigma and support staff who may be experiencing a mental health condition.
The training workshop covers three topics that team leaders and managers deliver to their staff in five-minute toolbox talk sessions (one for each topic). The topics are:
1. About anxiety and depression
2. The relationship between the workplace and mental health
3. Taking action to support someone at work
The training uses videos, case studies and individual and group activities to guide learning.
