Chin up and soldier on at my work

time off due to mental burnout
Brenda.Stobo
30:40
Very helpful
Amy Williams
31:02
Agree completely. We've started to have discussions in the workplace using this model
Marie
31:03
these analogies are great - makes it a lot easier to impart -
Kjerstin Karlsson
31:11
great to have clear conversations in the workplace but there need to be readily available mental health services and a health plan that covers these services
Ella Galloway-Warren
31:24
Great analogy - injury to mental health should be considered in the same way as physical injury
Chris
31:25
Makes sense, small issues can get worse overtime unless you address them and get help
Mark Adams YRC HSW
31:29
agree, its like a seesaw at times and depending on the circumstance this bounces around a little
Sandra Montgomerie
31:30
Not surprised. Want to build my workplace to really support healthy culture as and when I get to hire employees and looking after myself.
mjflood
31:36
id never self reflected on my mental health prior, but after seeing this graphic recently I am so much more self aware now, been a great insight to my own mental heath
Susan
32:26
harder to notice changes in colleagues during lockdown/wfh
Nicole Roberts - Holdfast Bay
32:29
It is a hard moving feat and can have so many things in play both at work and in personal lives.
Mark Adams YRC HSW
32:54
interesting illustration of walking down the path... some times theres not a lot of light down those paths to recognise just how far one is down that path
Glenda.Jones@masnational.com.au
33:05
withdrawal, lack of participation
Nicole Roberts - Holdfast Bay
33:15
snappy
Kjerstin Karlsson
33:40
late for work when they have always showed up early of on time previously
Sandra Montgomerie
33:47
distraction, defensiveness
Glenda.Jones@masnational.com.au
36:35
your approach needs to be genuine
Christine C
36:48
psychological safety in the workplace is important!
RForrest
37:57
Our culture tells us to mind our own business, don't intrude, makes it hard to know when it's appropriate to reach out
Annie at The STILL Effect
37:58
Lara this is so good thank you
Kjerstin Karlsson
38:05
don't discount their circumstances
Annie at The STILL Effect
38:36
lead by example yes!
Annie at The STILL Effect
39:26
leaders can show their vulnerability too. often much appreciated by employees
Kjerstin Karlsson
40:22
how do you approach the situation if your supervisor is the person dealing with a mental health concern?
Mark Adams YRC HSW
40:30
cant start building a bridge without laying good foundations - relationships are those foundations
Alison Fisher
46:05
We're mostly working remotely and I think these conversations are more difficult over the telephone than face to face
Sadie
47:23
Hi Rosie, is this similar to the ALGEE formula?
Christine C
48:06
ALGEE is from Mental Health first Aid.
Sandra Montgomerie
50:20
Always good to talk side by side less confronting when people feel vulnerable, same thing, taking clients fishing when working with kids, driving, walking
Sandra Montgomerie
50:33
An activity they enjoy
Kjerstin Karlsson
50:47
watch your body language
Sandra Montgomerie
50:52
What is ALGEE
Mark Adams YRC HSW
52:20
"travel talk" with outdoor staff on the go....is like office staff corridor talk, but with the advantage of no confinements of an office - great way of breaking down barrier, go to them
Christine C
52:25
Active listening
Chris
52:37
Socratic method - asking questions because people know the answers themself
Annie at The STILL Effect
52:51
ALGEE Approach, Listen, Give support, Encourage to get help, Encourage other support For me Rosie's CLEAR acronym is easier to remember
Alex Gaut - City of Holdfast Bay
53:59
I am very lucky. I have 2 people in my team (I'm a team leader) who are very comfortable to discuss their mental health issues and they make great role models and leaders for the rest of the team. They help me to be comfortable checking in with them and to demonstrate my own vulnerability at times.
Sadie
56:01
I love this strategy Rosie as in my coaching study it’s so important to understand and reflect rather than fix
Kjerstin Karlsson
56:04
be truthful with them and do not make promises you cannot keep.
Sandra Montgomerie
57:36
Thanks Annie, Wendy, Rosie
Kjerstin Karlsson
59:31
ask open ended questions in a respective manner.
Sandra Montgomerie
01:03:14
Great slide
Annie at The STILL Effect
01:03:36
yes!
Annie at The STILL Effect
01:04:47
yes avoid EMPATHY FATIGUE by 'resting your arm'
Kjerstin Karlsson
01:06:04
have staff yearly refreshers regarding mental health
Sharon Wernowski
01:06:14
Some great points (especially those last 5) here I know I could certainly work on and practice lol
Sandra Montgomerie
01:06:38
Wendy you’re very good at this I’ve noticed and appreciate
Nicole Roberts - Holdfast Bay
01:06:46
Do you just hope after that that it is enough after you have had CLEAR conversations and the employee seeks help? What about longer term issue?
Mark Adams YRC HSW
01:08:00
build empathy into our personality, looks better than trying to wear it like a jacket - a sincere and honest approach will quickly dissolve if there no genuine empathy
Sandra Montgomerie
01:08:42
Preparation for self care prior to conversation - recharged own batteries and hold own honest boundaries for self care
Sadie
01:08:59
Thank you Rosie - great session and I ditto your key points. Mental fitness is so important 👍
Marie
01:09:09
MH care is about building trust and small sincere conversations often.... then staff feel safer making that approach when things aren't quite right...
Christine C
01:12:08
Courageous conversations leads to awareness!
Sandra Montgomerie
01:12:20
