This six-hour workshop, in partnership with NDS and facilitated by Linda Rowley, will help disability support workers to identify and manage psycho-social risks that are often complex.

The training covers the following key areas:

  • The NDIS Context including definitions of psychosocial disability and mental health conditions
  • Prevelance of mental health conditions (general population and people with disabilities)
  • Impact of common mental health conditions on day-to-day functioning
  • Recognise, Respond and Report framework
  • Signs and symptoms of common Mental Health Problems: Depression, anxiety, substance use, psychosis, non–suicidal self-injury, suicidal self-injury. Mental health crises covered are: Suicidal thoughts and behaviours, panic attacks, traumatic events
  • How to recognise and effectively respond to each of the mental health problems and what/when to report
