Solidarity Hour Series: Workplace Mental Health Conversations

What is work-related mental illness? How can we identify mental health hazards in the workplace? How can we address mental health injuries?

The latest MWC report shows migrant workers are more susceptible to mental injury at work due to job insecurity and temporary status. It is crucial at this point not only to create awareness but also to proactively have effective mental health conversations in our workplaces and communities.

This training is designed to equip us with understanding about different factors affecting workers' mental health and how we can assist in seeking support to appropriate organisations and services.

Who is this training for?

This training is for emerging migrant and refugee community leaders, activists and volunteers, bicultural workers, and community service providers assisting migrant workers, their community members, and co-workers about their mental health issues at work.

Training content

  • Common signs to identify mental health issues
  • Good practice tips on having mental health conversations in the workplace
  • Mental health injuries and workers compensation
  • Referral pathways

Facilitators:

  • Vasso Zangalis (OHS Trainer, Victorian Trades Hall Council)

MWC "Solidarity Hour" series

Objective and format

The MWC "Solidarity Hour" series aims to build capacity in migrant communities and community service organisations to address issues related to labour exploitation among migrant workers. They are short online sessions facilitated by expert trainers. The sessions include group discussion, Q&A, and hand-out resources.

Why train with the Migrant Workers Centre?

MWC is a leading organisation in migrant workers' rights. It is the only service of its kind in Australia, offering free and confidential case management support to migrant workers experiencing workplace issues, and leading research and advocacy for migrant workers' rights in Australia. Our education program delivers critical information on workplace rights to thousands of migrant workers every year, and builds capacity in migrant communities by training and employing community leaders as Bicultural Educators. 

Custom training sessions

We can design custom sessions to meet the needs of your community or program participants. If you have any questions or would like to discuss organising a session, please contact Alba Khouri, Project Support Organiser ([email protected]).
