Mental health matters

The Olikka Wellness program invited former Senior Detective Craig Semple from the Black Dog Institute into talk about mental health awareness. Craig was exposed to some heavy situations during his career and it goes to show we can all be affected by mental illness, no matter how big and tough we think we are.

Craig provided really good understanding as to how we can all be affected by mental illness, how it can come about and then described some of the warning signs not only for ourselves but also to keeping an eye out for our workmates, friends and family.

Thank you Craig for starting the conversation at Olikka, breaking down barriers, providing an understanding of symptoms and introducing the team to mindfulness techniques, priceless.
