Mental Health Month is celebrated each year in the month of October in NSW. Mental Health Month is important as it encourages awareness of mental health, whereby it is an opportunity to reflect on the state of our mental health and look towards prioritizing mental wellbeing.
In AimBig and Rehab Management, we see the psychological effect that being a job seeker in the current environment can have on individuals, often leading to poor mental health. This applies to all individuals, especially those living with mental health issues or physical disabilities, whereby it important to have the tools necessary to manage your mental health as a job seeker.
So, throughout October, we are hosting a series of Lunch and Learn webinars aimed at helping you to manage your mental health while navigating the process of finding employment. We have organized a range of special guest speakers who will provide an insight into overcoming adversity while looking for work, returning to work and facing unemployment. These speakers have a combination of lived experiences and professional expertise, so they are well-equipped to guide you in the right direction, no matter your circumstances.
Webinars are open for anyone to attend, so feel free to bring a friend! Each one runs for a total of 60 minutes (consisting of a 45-minute presentation and then 15 minutes for questions afterwards).
Some highlight webinars include:
