Well Minds Work Workshop in Focus – MONA People, Culture and Safety Teams

Well Minds Work has already had a busy start to 2023 conducting psychosocial risk assessments as well as mental health and wellbeing workshops with prominent organisations in Tasmania!

Last Tuesday Well Minds Work collaborated with the People and Culture and Safety Teams at MONA, completing half a day of training on identifying signs and symptoms of stress, psychoeducation on the stress bucket model and increasing evidence-based coping strategies, as well as individual assessment of self-care needs.

We thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm the team at MONA teams brought to the day, which resulted in many productive conversations.

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

Well Minds Work presents Psychology in the Pub (no. 6)!

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!

On Friday Well Minds Work had the privilege of presenting at the Tasmanian Association of Vocational Rehabilitation Providers – TAVRP annual Symposium – The Dark Side of Rehab! Our presentation focused on how to support employees who are being bullied in the workplace.

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!
