Nationwide Masterclass Series – Mental Health Strategies for First Responders

Front-line staff from first responder organisations are at ongoing risk of mental health difficulties due to the cumulative exposure to work-related traumatic events.

This is in addition to the day to day personal and family stressors that can impact on mental health.

Many organisations have already begun to take steps to drive positive mental-health leadership from the top down and, thanks to effective awareness and educational campaigns, more first responders are now identifying and disclosing concerns about their mental health.

The Developing and Implementing Preventative Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategies for First Responders Masterclass is an opportunity to review your processes and policies for the mental health and wellbeing of your staff.

Learn best practice for reducing stigma and discrimination, how to enhance health promotion for physical and mental health, and develop policies to ensure the wellbeing of those who disclose a mental-health concern.



Attend to learn:

  • An understanding of the impact of leadership and workplace culture on mental health and wellbeing of staff
  • The core components of an effective mental-health and wellbeing strategies that protects your employees and your organisation
  • How to address mental-health stigma as part of mental-health and wellbeing promotion
  • The importance of developing an holistic strategy that encompasses physical, psychological and emotional health and wellbeing
  • Strategies to improve mental health literacy within your organisation and how to engage and educate in a change-resistant culture
  • Best practice for developing policies to reduce stigma and discrimination following disclosures
  • How to engage staff during and after a disclosure to streamline the process of getting them back to work


Founder and CEO of Picking Up The Peaces Kate Tonica will facilitate the masterclasses in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane throughout September and October.
