& the ultimate
I’m keeping mood notes, more regular exercise, yoga & pilates, more time with friends & family, less workload, more time at home relaxing, gone on a short holiday interstate
I feel more able to deal with any unexpected mental health problems that I may be confronted with in my daily working with students. Coming to work in the morning is less stressful because I know that when there is a problem I will be able to help in a constructive and safe manner. I have recommended to my colleagues that they should attend the course as well.
Community Care-line is not an emergency response.
For emergency response phone security on ext 333
Community Care-line is a new service providing a central point of enquiry by phone or email to Community Care staff who will provide advice and support for managing concerning or threatening behaviour and situationswithin the Monash University community.
Students and staff are encouraged to ask for assistance if they:
Feel threatened or unsafe
Have concerns about someone else’s behaviour
Are worried about someone harming themselves or someone else
Wish to clarify issues of responsibility, confidentiality or duty of care
The Co-ordinator Community Care programs will provide leadership and support at all stages of responding to complex and sensitive situations.
At all times the welfare of both the individual and the Monash community will be considered and all recommended action will be in accordance with university statutes and policies.
