What does it mean to be an accredited Healthy Minds Workplace?
Healthy Minds accreditation is a way to promote your organisation's wellbeing credentials. It represents a commitment to:
1. Provide evidence-based psychological skills training to all staff to prevent and reduce risk for mental ill-health while promoting effective self-management of personal wellbeing.
2. Provide the appropriate support services and referral processes when individuals require support (for example, a quality employee assistance program that is communicated regularly to staff).
3. The up-skilling of a set of dedicated staff members with advanced knowledge to assist and support the mental health and wellbeing of others within the organisation. This can include mental health first aid training or our 1-Day Healthy Minds Masterclass.
GPA Engineering has demonstrated it meets the criteria to be recognised in this way and we are a proud partner in their wellbeing and staff development efforts. Congratulations Alf and team!
