Mental Health and Well-Being Working Group

Good mental health and wellbeing is essential for a resilient workforce and a supportive workplace.

It has particular significance for first responders, including call takers and paramedics, who constantly contend with confronting and traumatic situations.

The working group plays a critical role in ensuring the sector is kept well informed about the latest research, best practice and strategies to help deliver optimum support for services’ staff experiencing difficulties in their professional and private lives. 

The group also supports services in their implementation of the CAA Health and Wellbeing Strategy including a 10-step program designed to minimize the risk of psychological harm, and actively promotes the annual Global Mental Health Day on October 10.
