Mental Health

Why is this important?

Every morning, one in every six working-aged persons will enter their workplace and begin their day managing a diagnosed mental illness. A further one in six will be suffering from symptoms associated with ill mental health.

Australian businesses are losing $10.9 billion each year to mental health-related issues. Over the past year, 21 per cent of Australians have taken time off work due to feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or mentally unhealthy.

Suicide is the leading cause of death in Australia among 15-44 year olds. This represents a large part of someone’s working life.

1 in 6 people enter their workplace with a mental illness

How we help our customers make a difference

When you contact HSE Global, we won’t just offer you a quick fix. We will take the time to understand your organisation and your people, and ask you questions that go deeper than just “What is it that you want?”.

At HSE Global, we will ask “What is genuinely important for you? What is it that you want to improve? And why now?”. We call this an Environmental Scan, and it gets to the heart of what is going to produce genuine, longstanding investments in your workplace mental health.

Mental Health First Aid Accreditation Course

This programme is of interest to those wishing to become mental health first aiders in their workplaces, as well as anyone interested in improving the knowledge and capability of an organisation in order to foster improved workplace mental health.

Facilitated over two days, this course gives participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in the material and really practice the skills of Mental Health First Aid.

This is by far the most effective method of delivery and our preferred method for this programme.

Blended Learning – MHFA for the Workplace Course

We also offer a Blended Learning Course format for the same Mental Health First Aid accreditation. This includes 4-5 hours of self-paced online learning, with a half day face to face facilitated component now delivered via zoom. For those people who find it difficult to attend a 2-day course, providing you have the discipline to complete the online component this can be a useful alternative format.

Fully Online Mental Health First Aid Course

We also offer two fully online versions of the same Mental Health First Aid accreditation. Both versions include 5-7 hours of self-paced online learning, followed by two facilitated online sessions with one of our accredited Instructors. Those two facilitated sessions are 2.5 hours long each, and are typically scheduled about a week apart. For those people who find it difficult to attend a 2 day course, or have dispersed participants who are unable to get together in the same location, this can be a useful alternative format.

The Blended Online MHFA Community Course covers mental health issues both inside and outside of the workplace.

The Blended Online MHFA Workplace Course is tailored specifically to the workplace.

Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course

At the end of the three-year accreditation period, you will need to renew your accreditation by attending a half day refresher course. This will give you a further three-year accreditation as a Mental Health First Aider. You will be sent a reminder that the accreditation period is coming to an end, and this will give you plenty of time to book on a refresher course.

The MHFA Refresher course is also available in a completely online, facilitator led format (5 hours in total).

Mental Health Fitness

In today’s world, the concept of physical fitness is well known. It is a state of general good health and wellbeing, that allows a person to perform specific tasks (such as sports or work tasks), whilst also helping to protect a person against developing/managing health conditions (such as diabetes or certain heart conditions). We are also aware that it is an activity; one that needs to be invested in every day (for example, with diet and exercise), rather than something that can ever be considered ‘ticked off’.

Mental fitness is very similar to physical fitness. When we are mentally fit, we flourish. We are able to meet the challenges of daily life, manage our stress in helpful ways, and feel confident in our ability to navigate our world. True mental fitness also requires daily investment, just like physical fitness. Mental fitness means more than just an absence of a mental illness; it is about going “from good, to great”.

HSE Global offers four different Mental Fitness programmes, which can cater and be adapted to different individual, team and organisational needs.
