Conversations Over A Cuppa

Now we're talking. Because, talking about mental health and illness has an impact.

Celebrating our Mental Health First Aid Skilled Workplace Recognition Program

Having open conversations about mental health is key to helping those struggling and breaking down stigma.

But, these talks can be hard. Equally, it’s not always easy to know what to say.

That’s why our leaders are trained, through the Mental Health First Aid Skilled Workplace Recognition Program, to spark conversation around mental well-being and help those in need.

We say ‘now’ because our society hasn’t always spoken about it, and this has created stigma – something that holds us back from receiving support and recognising when others need it too. Thankfully, creating spaces where we feel comfortable to talk is a huge step towards breaking stigma.

Conversation with Ash Paraskevas

We had a cuppa with Ash (@ashparaskevas), a mental health advocate, to discuss and normalise conversations on mental illness and health.

T2 is now trained in Mental Health First Aid

We think of mental illness being like any other health issues. We are all familiar with trained first aiders to help with physical injuries, but it’s just as important for us to have people to support with psychological injuries too.

That’s where Mental Health First Aid comes in – it encourages conversations about mental health and mental health conditions to become common practice in the workplace and trains leaders to be confident to have these conversations and offer support to their teams.

The T2 team talks Mental Health

Our T2 team share why they put their hand up to be trained in Mental Health First Aid, and why it is important that we create a supportive space to discuss it in the workplace.
