EVENT: WELLBEING STRATEGIES FOR INJURED WORKERS

Being on WorkCover with a long-term illness or injury can be an isolating and emotionally draining experience, taking a toll both physically and psychologically.

For Injured Workers Day 2024, we will be joined by Christine Field, CEO of Hunterlink, a not-for-profit EAP focused on workers’ wellbeing. She will share some wellbeing and coping strategies for injured workers and answer questions on all things related to mental health.

We welcome everyone, whether an injured worker, carer, or keen HSR, to attend this session and learn how injured workers can better support themselves and be supported by those around them while going through WorkCover.

Monday, 3 June. 4-5 pm, online via Zoom. RSVP here. Upon responding, participants will receive a Zoom link via a confirmation email.
