mlcoa ACT Updates

September Update:

Mental Health Month - Share the Journey

In October 2017, mlcoa is once again getting behind Mental Health month and producing the mlcoa Mental Health Blue Book. The theme for this year's Mental Health month is Share the Journey

This theme highlights the importance of having good social connections and relationships in place, especially for those dealing with mental health issues. In a world of increasing technology and social media, it is easy for us to withdraw from face to face contact and become isolated. Sharing the journey of mental health issues with a support network of people around us will ultimately improve our ability to cope with life's challenges.

The Share the Journey message, through our mlcoa educational, aims to increase mental health awareness and reduce the stigma around mental health in the workplace.  Each mlcoa state office will be holding Educational events highlighting Mental Health Month to raise awareness and promote better mental health in the workplace. A list of these events can be found here.

To further support you in better managing mental health conditions at work, mlcoa have also compiled the third edition of the mlcoa ‘Blue Book’ that provides:

  • Elements of how to make an effective mental health referral;
  • Mental health question design suggestions;
  • GPS2 - a clinical advisory service supporting treating doctors in providing best care management for their patients
  • How to identify and manage stress in the workplace;
  • 8 mental health related articles;
  • A national specialist listing;
  • Plus much more!

Keep an eye out for further communications from mlcoa on how you can secure your very own copy of the Mental Health Blue Book.
