What is Head Coach?
Working with the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Positive Psychology, this project includes the development of a pilot coaching program, called Head Coach, which aims to assist men (age range 25-44, largely from the building and construction industry) to seek help in order to increase their physical health and psychological wellbeing.
The project will include a variety of online learning approaches, development and provision of target resources and wellbeing measurement. Head Coach will complement and add value to the current services provided within the industry.
The Head Coach pilot programs major project partner is the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Positive Psychology.
Evidence indicates men are far less likely to seek help for mental health conditions than women. One in eight Australian men will experience depression in their lifetime.
