Love Where You Shop


Small Business Breakfast: Mental Health is Everybody's Business

Proudly brought to you by Lane Cove Council in partnership with Black Dog Institute.

We're pleased to share with you details about a Business Breakfast we're hosting online on Wednesday 13 October from 7:30am - 9:00am. Join other businesses in Lane Cove and hear how you can help yourself, your staff and your community by better understanding mental health.

In this free online workshop you will:

  • Understand the causes, signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions;
  • Find out what help is available inside and outside of the workplace; and
  • Understand five core concepts of wellbeing and how these translate into daily life.

The workshop will be presented by Lisa McLeod from Black Dog Institute. Lisa is a psychologist, executive coach and workplace trainer who has over 20 years experience in progressing both individual and workplace wellbeing.

 Wednesday 13 October 2021, 7:30am - 9:00am, online via Zoom

We would love to see you there! Bookings are essential.
