At Proactive Action, our vision is to develop the lives of people and organisations, so that everyone can return to their families safely, every day.
Since 2017, our Founder and CEO Emma Parsons, has been a mental health advocate.
Originally providing individual consultations and coaching for C-Suite Executives across Australia, we recognised that companies (especially male-dominated workplaces), were struggling to improve and develop the mental wellbeing of their teams. Preventative mental health practices are needed throughout the whole company.
The cost to the Australian economy of mental ill-health and suicide, conservatively, is in the order of $43bn-$51bn a year.
However, the cost of someone losing a family member, friend, colleague is priceless
How We Work
Proactive Action recognises that no two organisations are the same.
Which is why in 2020 we developed the MindSafe Process.
This unique process was created to assist an organisation with a deeper understanding of how to reduce their exposure to mental health risks and hazards.
The MindSafe Process achieves better results faster and is tailored to your workplace and team.
We are proud to say that we are one of the first companies in Australia to be providing Psychosocial Assessments that align with the ISO45001 standard.
We also offer; Consulting, Leadership Coaching, Leadership Retreats, Resilience Training, Stress Management Training, Conflict Management Training, Interpersonal Relationships, Psychological Safety at Work Training as well as bespoke training.
Spaces are limited
