Frontline stress and mental health first aid

Presentation by: Stephen Dowling, Corporate Manager Health, Safety, Rehabilitation and Wellness, ESTA 000 (Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority)

Presentation package now available (members only)

Few jobs are as high pressure and stressful as that of Emergency 000 operators. They deal constantly with life and death situations, often working with distressed, panicked and confused callers.
Helping them handle the stress of their job is the task of Stephen Dowling, whose role is focused not only on physical safety in the workplace, but also on reducing the risk of psychological injury and mental health.
Stephen talked about his work with the 000 team, and discussed strategies for helping employees in stressful frontline situations with the use of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA).
He outlined what was involved in MHFA training and why workplaces should appoint people to this role as they did physical first aid officers.
Stephen also discussed intervention strategies for managing psychosocial risk in the workplace.
Stephen has been a leader in dealing with workplace psychological injury for many years and helps a wide range of organisations and industries around the country to develop systems that ensure employees get help when they need it. Stephen believes lack of knowledge and stigma about psychological injury can prevent people from seeking help early, and limit the ability of co-workers and managers to provide mental health first aid to their workmates until appropriate professional treatment is available.
