IGS retains gold rating in Mental Health First Aid

For the fourth year in a row, IGS has been awarded a gold rating in Mental Health First Aid.

Mental Health First Aid Australia has recognised IGS as a “GOLD Mental Health First Aid Skilled
Workplace”.

The award acknowledges our significant achievements in developing Mental Health First Aid skills in our people
and embedding a sustainable and effective program.

“I feel this is a fantastic recognition of the high level of commitment all of the IGS community has to mental health and wellbeing,” said IGS Director of Counselling Services Joe Degeling.

“IGS has held the Gold level of the Skilled Workplace Program since 2015.”

The rating comes as the School and Parents, Teachers and Friends (PTF) association offers Mental Health First Aid Training for parents and caregivers as part of the IGS Community Learning Program.

Book here for Youth Mental Health First Aid for Parents, presented by IGS Director of Counselling Services Joseph Degeling, which will take place on Saturdays 16 and 23 March 2019 (limited places available; book early to avoid disappointment).
