Introduction to Mental Health and Wellness for Medical/Front Desk Staff
Dealing with the public is not without its challenges in even the best circumstances (just ask anyone who has worked retail during the Christmas rush). However, for frontline staff in medical and allied health centres, we’re often dealing with people at their most vulnerable and in moments of acute distress. Over time, this can take a toll.
This workshop is designed to help you better recognise and understand the source of some of the more distressing behaviours we see in clients and patients. Not only will this help you deal with things more effectively in the moment, it will also reduce the risk of burnout and carer fatigue.
Over 3 hours, we will explore:
- The 5 most common mental health presentations in primary healthcare
- What each of those presentations looks like at the front desk or in the treatment room
- Responding to mental health-related crises
- Self-care and burnout prevention
We know this workshop will be of benefit to you and your workplace, so if you’d like more information, or to register your interest, please call us on 0451-044-015 with your preferred days/times.
Group discounts are available for practices that send multiple practitioners/workers.
