Well Minds Work Workshop in Focus – IMAS

Well Minds Work has already had a busy start to 2024, conducting mental health and wellbeing workshops with prominent organisations in Tasmania!

Today Well Minds Work collaborated with the PhD students at IMAS, completing a training session on anticipating and preventing burnout, as well as how to enhance self-care.

We thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm from the team at IMAS, which resulted in many productive conversations.

Please get in touch if you or your team are interested in engaging in some similar training! 🧠

Psychology in the Pub: Stop the Drama! How to Escape Unhealthy Relationship Dynamics

A big shoutout and thank you to everyone who came along to Hobart Brewing Co. yesterday for the last Psych in the Pub for 2023 – Stop the Drama! How to Escape Unhealthy Relationship Dynamics.

Unfortunately one of our amazing presenters – Dr. Emma – was unwell, so Jess needed to go solo for this one. Although Emma was sorely missed, we had a great afternoon of fun and learning!

Can’t wait to see you all next year for more Psych in the Pub sessions and please get in touch with any topics of interest!

Psychology in the Pub: A Snapshot into the Science behind Sleep

Good sleep is continually promoted as a key factor in maintaining both physical and mental health, but what exactly does good sleep look like? A snapshot into the science behind sleep will give an overview of what typical sleep looks like, evidence based facts on what constitutes “good” sleep, and debunk common sleep myths! This interactive talk will also provide practical tips on how to improve sleep habits to get a better night’s sleep. The actionable skills you will learn can be immediately implemented at home so you can function more effectively and facilitate better mental health.

This talk is part of a series of “Psychology in the Pub” presentations, where psychologists present on a range of interesting and engaging topics related to mental health and psychological issues. Emma and Jess look forward to welcoming you to a fun and relaxing afternoon of learning!

Well Minds Work and Psychosocial Hazards

Australian organisations are required by Workplace Health and Safety Laws to manage hazards in the workplace. The most recent Workplace Health and Safety Regulations (2022) include a specific requirement for organisations to prevent and manage psychosocial hazards.

A new Code of Practice has been introduced to help guide the prevention and management of psychosocial hazards, which include: high job demand, inadequate reward and recognition of staff, bullying, and many more.

Well Minds Work are now completing Psychosocial Risk Assessments to assist workplaces to identify psychosocial hazards, assess risk, develop initatives to control identified hazards, and review implemented control measures.

Get in contact with us if you are interested in finding out more about how Well Minds Work can help you assess and manage psychosocial hazards!
