Depression Workshops

Looking for information of depression in the workplace? Finding that there are more depressed clients than you would like? Need that bit of extra CPD (continual professional development? 

Then this may be just the course you would like to get involved with.

Run by Beyond Blue, the Professional Education to Aged Care (PEAC) program is highlighting the stigma around mental health in older Australians, and in our caring workplaces.
