Description

Preventing mental illness and improving well being.

Most New Zealanders will have some mental health issues in their lifetime.

If left undiagnosed or untreated, mental health issues can significantly impact on a person’s ability to do their job. The World Health Organisation has listed depression as the leading cause of productivity loss worldwide.

In addition to performance and productivity issues, we will consider an employer’s legal compliance. Find out how to avoid discrimination, support staff, and comply with new health and safety law.

Our webinar will provide an effective overview of mental health issues, with a focus on anxiety and depression. We have added important information to this webinar in 2017:

  •  Discuss Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and brain injuries. 
  •  Consider case studies to show you how to deal with real issues.
