Around 45% of Australians aged between 16 and 85 will experience a mental illness at some point in their life, while one in five Australian adults will experience a mental illness in any given year. And yet, conversations about mental illness are incredibly hard to start. But who can you have an honest conversation with? Yourself. Our mental health training program focuses on self-awareness, asking you to ask yourself "Am I Okay?"
The problem with almost all current corporate initiatives around mental health is that they focus on one-on-one and top-down training. The intent is to up-skill management, and have them check-in with their staff with an "R U OK?". However, this strategy leaves a big gap: no one is checking in with the managers.
Yarno's workplace mental health training fills all gaps: by focusing on self-awareness, our course reduces all barriers to connect. We aim to ensure that all persons in all positions have the tools they need to start conversations about, deal with, and seek help for their own mental health.
