Why do we need more education and training in mental health?
Every year, approximately one in five Australians will experience a mental illness in a 12 month period and 5% will develop a substance misuse disorder. An average of 65% will not seek help, largely due to stigma including lack of knowledge about mental health problems and mental illness. In 2016 there were 2,866 deaths by suicide which is almost eight per day, eight too many.
How will education help increase knowledge and reduce stigma?
Knowledge is power and being aware of our own attitudes and behaviours, knowing the facts and educating others, can be powerful tools in helping to reduce stigma in the workplace and in the community.
Talking Mental Health aims to increase participants knowledge and skill levels through the provision of a variety of accredited courses and programs designed to fit the needs of your organisation.
