M.A.B. Staff Safety Training for Mental Health


The structure of support services offered to persons living with mental health challenges is changing in Australia. Unfortunately staff can be exposed to unique safety challenges in residential, respite and/or outreach settings, particularly when only one staff member is present. Holland Thomas shares a commitment to the physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of consumers and support workers alike. For staff in the mental health sector, our enduring and sustainable solutions effectively manage aggressive behaviours.
