David Burroughs delivers keynote speech at this year's Konekt Safe Work Month Expo 

Workplace Mental Health – Understanding Your Psychosocial Climate and Systems Based Approaches to Developing a Psychologically Safe and Healthy Workplace 

Terms like Workplace Mental Health, Mentally Healthy Workplaces, Psychosocial Risk, and Psychological Health and Safety have increasingly gained prominence in the international corporate lexicon. Globally, there has been a surge in interest in how the workplace can influence psychological health and the psychosocial factors that need to be addressed to not only mitigate stress and the risk of work-related psychological injury, but to manage and support good mental health. 

The costs and impact of mental –ill health in the workplace have been well quantified, and there has been somewhat of an evolution in how corporate workplaces are tackling this complex issue. Regrettably, despite the huge interest in this domain, most strategic approaches to workplace mental health are destined to fail - many initiatives, despite their best intentions, confuse mental health with mental illness, are inadvertently designed to perpetuate injury and illness, and may even lead to a decline in over workplace wellbeing. 

Looking at lessons learned and international best practice, this seminar will cover contemporary trends in workplace mental health, debunk many of the myths around workplace mental health and demonstrate the critical importance of moving beyond low-impact community, diagnosis and symptom reduction reliant approaches to more systemic and quantifiable efforts.

This candid, informal, interactive and practical two-and-half hour seminar, Dave Burroughs, CEO and Principal Psychologist of CommuniCorp will cover:
  • The practicalities of Psychologically Safe and Healthy Workplaces (PS&HW) Psychosocial Climate, what is it and how do I measure it 
  • Developing a Workplace Mental Health Strategy - why most are destined to failed 
  • Undertaking a Gap Analysis - System, policy, procedural and people considerations 
  • Leadership and other key roles and responsibilities 
  • Determining program effectiveness - what, how and when to measure and what to expect
Konekt and CommuniCorp proudly support Safe Work Month’s 2017 theme of “Sharing safety knowledge and experience benefits everyone”.
