WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH Training

Work stress plays a significant role in the incidence of depression, anxiety and other disorders. But work should not “bust our brains”. A healthy workplace is one that protects the mental well-being of its people through good organisational practices, responsive management, a positive workplace culture, support and respect.

Three PILLARS FOR PROTECTION

At ADA Australia, we take a ‘three pillars’ approach to behavioural health and workplace safety around drugs and alcohol, and in promoting workplace mental health and positive workplace culture.

Innovative Training Solutions

ADA Australia's Friendly Ear Support Service is available 24/7 to all clients and their families - any hour, any day. The service is anonymous, confidentiality assured, and operated by experienced support workers.

OUR TRAINING IS YOUR INSURANCE

A workplace that values mental health is a productive workplace.

A workplace built on a commitment to respect, free from unreasonable and overbearing behaviours, doesn’t happen by accident. Neither does a workplace free from risk of hazardous behaviours due to impairment from drugs and alcohol. 

But you can achieve this through training, awareness and action.

ADA WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING

Work stress plays a significant role in the incidence of depression, anxiety and other disorders. But work should not “bust our brains”. A healthy workplace is one that protects the mental well-being of its people through good organisational practices, responsive management, a positive workplace culture, support and respect.

ADA Australia’s Workplace Mental Health Training will improve productivity and satisfaction at work, guard against hazardous behaviours and promote healthy work-systems and practices.

ADA WORKPLACE DRUGS & ALCOHOL AWARENESS TRAINING

The misuse of alcohol and drugs comes at a heavy cost to business, to work relationships and productivity, and to families and the community.

ADA’s Workplace Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Training programs foster safe-work practices through improved awareness and understanding of the impact of these substances on health and wellbeing, on brain function, judgement and work performance.

TRAINING THAT MATTERS

At ADA Australia, we understand that when you invest in training you want it to ‘stick’:

To drive awareness and behavioural change
To change mindsets and to foster improved workplace culture and practices
To increase satisfaction, commitment and productivity
To produce lasting benefits to the health and wellbeing of all at the workplace

Delivered by trainers with ‘lived experience’, our drug and alcohol awareness workshops and workplace mental health training will ‘stick’ with your people. (And can change lives…)

TAILORED TRAINING SOLUTIONS

Our one-hour ‘toolbox’ workshop, and two-hour, half-day and one-day training programs can be delivered at your workplace, at our training rooms or at any suitable preferred venue.

All training can be customised to your industry sector (with content targeted to your work environment) and delivered flexibly to your operational demands. To talk about this training, or for a quote on delivery options, email enquiry@adaaus.com.au or call 1300 378 429.

Our Vision
