New online training program to support the wellbeing of Australian small business owners
Everymind is conducting an evaluation of a new national online training program for Australian small business owners, which aims to enhance capacity and confidence in promoting positive mental health and wellbeing within their business.
The new small business online training program will help develop the knowledge, skills and practices small business owners need to support their wellbeing, and provide early intervention when needed. The program also encourages small business owners to reflect on their own mental health and wellbeing.
The program will deliver a variety activities, case studies, information sheets and lived experience videos, which explore key topic areas of mental health, wellbeing, coping with stress, help-seeking strategies and action planning.
There will be four, 10-15 minute modules to complete over four weeks, each containing practical tips and tools, and reflective questions.
Approximately 120 Australian small business owners are needed to participate in the national online training program, for the evaluation. If you are a small business owner, or support a small business owner that may benefit from the wellbeing training program, take the next steps to register.
This evaluation is being conducted by researchers from Everymind as part of the Ahead for Businessprogram with funding from the Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.
