In recognition of the work CFA has been doing in raising awareness of mental health, BeyondBlue recently nominated our CEO, Mick Bourke and Chief Officer, Euan Ferguson to take part in a video aimed at supporting mentally healthy workplaces right across Australia.

With Mental Health Week coming up on the 5th to 12th October 2014, it is a timely reminder for all CFA members to remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health.  To hear what Mick and Euan have to say, view BeyondBlue’s video 

In support of Mental Health Week, CFA’s Organisational Wellbeing team is also running a live forum and encourages all CFA members to ask any questions they may have about mental health.

Psychologist Arthur Papagiannis will be on hand to answer your questions (during 5th to 12th October 2014).  Arthur is the founder and Managing Director of AP Psychology & Consulting Services and has been working with CFA to better support its members with managing their mental health.  You can also find Arthur talking about mental health in CFA’s new mental health video series here

So what can I use the online forum for?

  • Ask a question which psychologist Arthur Papagiannis will answer within a 24 hour period (during Mental Health Week - 5th to 12th October 2014)
  • Share some tips to improve mental health and wellbeing
  • Explore tip sheets via CFA’s HeadsUP online tool
  • Check out the current services and resources available to CFA members and their immediate families
