World Mental Health Day

It's World Mental Health Day, a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.

With one in five Australians suffering from a mental illness it's important to know that you're not alone and that help and support is available. Our members can access personal counselling on work or life issues through our member assistance program (MAP), Optum, on 1300 361 008.

There are range of online tools, self help and support services available for ADAVB members on the Optum website:

Members will need their MAP access code to access the Optum website. Log into the ADAVB website and visit My ADAVB - Member Assistance Program for your access code.

The ADAVB runs a series of courses about professional life such as team work, communications skills and work life balance. Join us at our next Work Life Balance Practice Plus workshop on Wednesday 28 November, 12.15pm-5pm.

Make some time for 'you' and join us for eviDent's Vin, Yin and Vino yoga class on Friday 19 October, 6.30pm-8.30pm.

Help is also available through:

  • R U OK Day
