SANE Australia: Mental Illness and Bereavement Workshops >

Supporting people who have been bereaved by suicide is an important yet often overlooked suicide prevention strategy.

The SANE Mental Illness and Bereavement Workshop explores how health professionals can better support the family and friends of people with mental illness who have died by suicide, exploring issues that may arise during this process. The workshop draws on the personal experiences of people bereaved by suicide.

Who should attend?

  • Mental health workers (case-workers, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, counsellors, peer-workers, social workers)
  • Mental health managers and executives responsible for organisational change and policy development.

Cost: $125 per person including GST

‘A New Mental Health System – What Now?’ Seminar >

An industry led seminar for mental health service providers to raise, examine and address key issues impacting their services as a result of forthcoming changes to the Tasmanian mental health sector. Discussions will be facilitated by the three key agencies at the centre of the reforms: the National Disability Insurance Agency, Primary Health Tasmania and the Department of Health and Human Services.
This is an opportunity for your organisation to learn about how the reforms will directly intersect and how the pieces of this puzzle will eventually fit together. The seminar is suitable for leaders and managers in the organisation, human resources managers and other key decision makers.

Registration on this link is essential to secure your place in the seminar.
The day will be facilitated by Andrew Hollo from Workwell Consulting. Andrew Hollo works with all levels of government, the not-for-profit sector and social enterprises. Workwell Consulting’s vision is for government and non-government agencies to optimise their ability to solve complex social and population health problems. Workwell helps clients apply innovation, evidence and insight to gain conceptual agreement, design operating models and form organisational strategy.
