Event Description

Massey University doctoral student Andy Walmsley explores the state of mental health in New Zealand and looks at strategies for improving mental health in the workplace. He offers advice on how we can tell if someone is struggling, and what we can do to help them. Andy also explores how we can overcome the stigma associated with seeking help for mental health issues, and outlines how we can use team meetings to promote a positive mental health work culture. While Andy’s research has focused on men, this presentation is geared towards providing managers and workers  – of all genders – with the skills and knowledge to take action.

Andy is currently completing his PhD on suicide prevention within the construction industry and has collected data from 800 men from a wide range of construction-related roles. He has spent the past three years researching the topic, and has worked on a range of research projects to improve men’s wellbeing within the work environment.
