A Peer-Support Program for the Workplace
Lifeline WA has collaborated with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy (CME) to continue our commitment to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of employees in the workplace with the development of the Resourceful Mind program. Read more here.
Lifeline WA trains employees to be peer supporters known as “Minders” that will support both help-offering and help-seeking behaviour at work.
The program has been piloted with the Resources sector and has trained 130 peer supporters. The program provides Minders (peer supporters) with ongoing training and support for 12 months via core training, elective online modules and group coaching and wellbeing. In addition, peer supporters have access to a debrief service in which a trained crisis supporter is available if they need support themselves.
Edith Cowan University is conducting research on the results of this pilot to determine the program effectiveness and psychological safety for the peer supporters.
The program to be ready for roll-out in early 2022.
