Based in Perth, Performance Science provides on-site and off-site workplace mental health training across multiple industries including oil and gas, mining, first responders, defence and health care. Our workshops are backed by psychological research and best practice.
As a team of psychologists, we specialise in organisational psychology and mental health, and therefore, all of our training modules and delivery methods are underpinned by best practice methods and evidence-based research. We translate this research into innovative and practical workshops for your organisation. We then evaluate our own work to assess the impact it has made.
We work collaboratively with organisations to identify what issues and concerns they would like to address. With this in mind, we tailor our workshops to suit the needs of your current concerns and add value to your organisational objectives. We focus on solutions and skills and not products.
Mental health is a topic we feel strongly about. We believe that the workplace should be an environment where every individual thrives and feels good about what they do. These values drive us to provide mental health workshops that are not only informative and educative, but that can inspire others to advocate a mentally healthy workplace.
All our workshops include:
We can deliver any workshop in an online, offline, or mixed-mode setting.
