PTSD EXPERT GUIDELINES
A panel of nine of Australia’s leading PTSD experts was assembled to develop a set of guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD specifically within emergency service workers. The guidelines aim to combine expert opinion and the best available research to provide succinct, focused guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of emergency service workers with PTSD.
The RESPECT Manager Training Program was developed by the Black Dog Institute in close collaboration with Fire & Rescue NSW. It combines mental health training with practical advice about how to help those who may be suffering with impaired mental health.
RESPECT was delivered as a controlled trial and more than 120 managers attended 4-hours of face-to-face training. Evaluated by UNSW, the program delivered significant improvement in work-related sick leave, and a return on investment of $13.00 for every dollar spent on training.
