Building connection and resilience through virtual learning

In these unique times, many people may be feeling anxious, worried or afraid as COVID-19 continues to impact all of us. Looking after the Mental Health of ourselves, friends and family is an important part of staying well. Surf Life Saving NSW is committed to empowering connection and resilience in communities

through innovative learning programs. Its newly developed 60-minute virtual “Kitchen Catch Up” is a specially curated program, facilitated by two accredited Mental Health First Aid Facilitators in a dialogue style to offer participants the opportunity to learn more about Mental Health and tips on looking after themselves.

At this session, Dan will share how he builds connection and resilience with its workforce through this innovative program. Andrew will then share his learning from developing its virtual training delivery capability.
