This is a chance for people, media and organisations to raise more awareness, reach out to those who need support, and shine a spotlight on an issue that may be overlooked.
Most of Australian businesses are failing to support employees when it comes to mental well being, with 1 in 5 Australians experiencing a mental illness in their lifetime.
Many organisations are eager to address the topic but don’t know where to start.
This is where eLearning can help!
At eCreators, we’re fully supportive of the cause and acknowledge the importance of a healthy mental health within the workplace. We also believe that the more open we can be to discuss the topic in the workplace, the more we can help to support one another.
This article will outline how eLearning can assist in creating a healthy workplace environment, and support your workers mental health.
Design courses that are 100% made for your learners.A custom course, is designed to engage and communicate with your learners and instil a deeper understanding of the topic, and we are hoping this can be used to create courses which support mental health.
Online training is a very effective way to not only educate your team, leaders and employees but to also build a safe environment to discuss the sensitive topic of mental health.
Investing some time into more learning will help managers feel more equipped to help staff who may be experiencing the problems of low mental health.
