Mental health and Performance Management program

Target audience/who should attend: 

 This program is best suited for managers and leaders at all levels within a program.


Leading and supervising any person who suffers from a Mental Illness or Mental Health Challenges can be a difficult process. It is highly likely that a leaders will have to deal with this numerous times during their career.

The statistics tell us that 1 in five (20%) of people in our community suffer from some sort of Mental Health Challenge or illness in any given year.

Individuals may join an organisation already suffering from a mental illness or challenge or they may develop either of these whilst a member of your organisation. Most people successfully manage these challenges without it impacting on productivity and work performance. 

Some individuals, however, require a higher level of support for a short period of time, whilst a minority will require ongoing workplace strategies and potentially a performance management program.

We sometimes presume that an employee’s mental health challenges develop outside of the workplace. An ‘unhealthy’ work environment or a workplace incident can cause exacerbate, or contribute, to the development of mental illness.
