Making a difference in mental health

In October, we hosted a series of mental health presentations in Perth’s CBD to coincide with World Mental Health Day.

Experts from their respective fields in mental health discussed important issues facing our society today, including suicide risk, identity and self-esteem, and medications.

Through these presentations, our aim was to educate the public on a range of mental health issues, as well as to help raise awareness of their impacts and how they can be successfully managed.

Other outcomes from these presentations are detailed below:

Rethink mental health at work

More than 70% of people with mental illness actively hide their mental illness from others, with many of those doing so out of fear of discrimination when looking for or keeping a job, according to a recent report by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH).

Although mental illness is experienced to some degree by a significant proportion of the global workforce, the reason behind keeping it concealed is largely that it is still often seen as a taboo issue – one that is avoided and ignored in many cases rather than understood and accepted.

Be mental health aware while you study

Almost half of all Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime, and new research from mental health organisation headspace shows that more Australian students are stressed, anxious and depressed than ever before.

And that means the odds are that you or someone you know is probably going through a hard time right now. While we provide support and advice to help make your time at TrainSmart Australia as smooth and convenient as possible, there are still additional things you can do to look after your mental health while you study.
