WORKPLACE NETWORKING EVENT

Join us on Wednesday 16th June from 12:30-2:00pm (AEST)
for this free networking event

Featuring presenters from a diverse range of workplaces and sectors, the workplace networking event is the forum to connect, network and learn from other organisations and access support and resources from Mental Health First Aid Australia. 

For organisations who have recently introduced MHFA training, or those considering the program, this free 90-minute networking event hosted via Zoom is the perfect opportunity to learn from other workplaces and hear first-hand about successful implementation strategies.

If you are already running MHFA training, then the peer-to-peer event is a great way to engage with other workplaces, and learn more about the innovative ways that businesses are using MHFA to improve employee well-being and culture in their organisations.  

The event will feature a short presentation from our 4 featured workplaces, a Q & A session and then the opportunity for more in-depth conversation, in smaller, facilitated breakout rooms.
