Mental Health and Wellbeing

Rehab Management works with thousands of employers and employees across Australia on a range of preventative workplace mental health and wellbeing initiatives.

The SuperFriend 2020 report found that mental health concerns are the most common reason for lower productivity in 2020, affecting 3 in 5 workers.

To work towards addressing this, we offer a range of training solutions and services aimed at raising awareness and providing practical solutions to mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. These services include CheckInToday, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training, Mental Health Awareness, and Bullying and Harassment training.

Mental Health Awareness and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

We provide Mental Health Awareness training for organisations designed to assist managers and the organisation in early identification and strategies to support mental health in the workplace.

Also, whilst physical first aid is accepted and widespread in our community, most do not cover mental health problems. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills necessary to help friends, family or co-workers, who may be experiencing or suffering from mental illness.

MHFA is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.

The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

Bullying and Harassment Training

Workplace bullying is repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards an individual or group that creates a risk to health and safety. Unreasonable behaviour includes behaviour that is victimising, humiliating, intimidating, or threatening and can adversely affect the psychological and physical health of an individual.

Anti-discrimination law on the other hand defines harassment as any form of behaviour that is directed to a group or individual and:
  • is unwanted

  • verbal abuse or comments
  • offensive jokes or gestures
  • ignoring, isolating or segregating a person or group - for example not inviting someone to a work event that everyone else is invited to
  • Compensation claims

  • Suspensions
