Let's Have a 'GoodYarn'

Train your people, for your people.

It’s pretty well accepted that mental health issues in Australia and New Zealand are on the increase. In Australia, 45% of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In New Zealand, 1 in 5 live with a mental health condition.

Sadly, our people are more vulnerable to burnout, stress, depression and anxiety than ever before.

Workplaces that positively support mental wellbeing experience an improved culture, an increase in employee resilience and as a result, can achieve better business outcomes.

Ignoring the legal requirements (the Health and Safety at Work Act now recognises the duty of care employers have to protect employees from mental health harm due to work), it makes good sense to take a proactive approach to managing mental health in the workplace.

We’ve Graduated!

Train your people, for your people.

To further enhance our mental health services, we’ve recently teamed up with the Good Programs Trust to deliver the ‘GoodYarn’ program.  This now enables us to deliver a program that tackles mental wellbeing head on (pardon the pun!) through a peer-to-peer delivery model.

This innovative program has been delivered to in excess of 5,000 participants. From those, feedback received includes:

  • It is helping them to create a more caring workplace culture;
  • It provides personal development to staff;
  • It is helping staff to keep themselves well; and
  • It is helping them create a sense of contribution and collaboration.

The reason why this program is different, and achieves real, tangible results, is because it focuses on empowering your people to be able to run the entire program themselves in a unique peer-to-peer delivery method.

Here at Synergy Health, we understand the importance of mental wellbeing, and we believe that as many workplaces as possible should benefit from the exceptional results achieved by delivering the ‘GoodYarn’ program.
