New iCare training program helps employers respond to workplace mental health

NSW state insurer icare has recently launched a new training program to help employers improve workplace mental health.

The new 'More than mental health skills' training program aims to encourage businesses to take a more strategic approach to work-related psychosocial risks.

Caringa Australia participated in the new course and found the content very practical and helpful.

"The workshop created the opportunity to take what each person had learnt during MHFA training and apply it to the development of organisational resources and processes," says Ruby Grieves, System Development and Quality Coordinator at Caringa Australia.

"It provided valuable and practical resources for Caringa to use when implementing and measuring any proposed process changes. This further assists us to meet our compliance requirements to physical and psychosocial safety of our workers.

"We would recommend this workshop to anyone looking for practical ways to integrate mental health safety into their business."

The 'More than mental health skills' program builds on icare’s Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training.
