Online Workplace Mental Health courses available in Workday


In an ongoing effort to deliver high quality health and wellbeing services for staff, the Health and Safety Team, Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Graduate Research Academy have teamed up with the Black Dog Institute to offer two online courses to support mental health in the workplace.

These are available for all Macquarie employees to complete from now until the end of September 2022. Courses can be completed at the participant’s own pace and take 45-60 minutes to complete. Topics include stress management, access and seeking support, and strategies to maintain optimal wellbeing.

The Understanding Workplace Mental Health and Wellbeing at MQ is designed to explore skills and techniques to manage your mental health in the workplace. It addresses common myths and impacts of stigma around mental health, as well as common mental health conditions. The aim is for participants to develop skills to have effective conversations about mental health and explore the range of support services available to them.

There is also a version of the course, Understanding Workplace Mental Health and Wellbeing for MQ Managers, which covers the same ground with an additional module for how to look out for your team members’ mental health. It includes videos of what staff think about managers actions towards mental health and an activity to help guide and respond to certain situations.
