Now in its third year, expert guest speakers are set to take to the virtual stage next month as part of genU Training’s annual Mental Health Webinar Series. 

Kicking off on World Mental Health Day (Monday 10th October), genU Training will be running free daily webinars through to Friday 14th October. The webinars are an exploration of how conversations around mental health can transform lives, build resilience, and bond communities. 

The genU Training Mental Health Webinar Series attracts a diverse audience, including genU staff, industry leaders, carers of those who are experiencing mental ill health, those interested in a career in mental health, and the wider community.  

With research suggesting that 1 in 5 Australians experience mental illness every year (source: Black Dog Institute), genU Training’s Mental Health Webinar Series will equip individuals with the skills to engage in important conversations around mental health. 

A selection of notable speakers including Hunter Johnson, David Pearce, and Jules Haddock will present the series, accompanied by Australian actor, and past genU Training student, Steve Bastoni, who will MC some sessions, and share his experience.  

Covering topics ranging from breaking the stigma around men’s mental health, self-compassion, creative arts, support after suicide, substance abuse related journeys, workplace mental health support and more, the webinars aim to shine a light on the significant and life-changing capacity of mental health dialogue in communities.  

Training thousands of Australians each year through the delivery of courses such as CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health and Mental Health First Aid, genU Training is expertly placed to deliver the empowering series. 

General Manager of Education and Training, Lisa Abbott, says that the annual event enables genU Training to continue to live its vision of building inclusive communities.  

“At genU Training we believe in building inclusive communities through education,” Lisa says. “Education brings a level of understanding. 

“Mental health affects every Australian, so shining the light on topics which elicit conversation is so important. By normalising mental illness through conversation, we as a community can start the foundations for wellness.” 

The Mental Health Webinar Series kicks off on World Mental Health Day, Monday 10th October 2022 at 12pm DST. Click here to secure your free spot now.
