Support for managers and supervisors

Manager Assist Service - Supporting Positive Leadership

UON recognises the need to support Managers and Supervisors engaging with staff who are facing mental health challenges and the UON Manager Assist Service provides assistance with issues as they arise.

Managers and Supervisors are able to access immediate consultation with NewPsych regarding psychological issues affecting the workplace.  Managers and Supervisors have access to this professional and confidential service for issues which may include assisting staff members whose performance at work is affected by emotional or psychological factors, dealing with emotional issues at work (e.g., suicidal or emotionally distressed staff members), providing performance feedback to staff members, preventing and managing the impact of post-trauma stress following a critical incident.

To access the service call 02 4926 5005 or email and advise that you need to utilise the Manager Assist Service.
