11 October 2021
TAL is running a series of mental wellbeing courses to support licensees and financial advisers to manage and enhance their own mental health, alongside that of their clients.
The programs will be delivered through the life insurer’s Risk Academy.
“With the combination of industry change in the advice sector and the current challenges across Australia… the importance of maintaining mental health has never been more important,” Head of Mental Health Glenn Baird said.
“This significance is magnified when you consider the role a financial adviser plays in the life and wellbeing of their clients – to effectively support the mental health and overall wellbeing of their clients they must be engaged with their own mental health.”
He says the courses are designed are designed to inspire positive change by equipping advisers and licensees with the tools and services to adapt to the evolving mental health landscape and start supportive conversations to help them better connect with their clients.
The courses will focus on providing insights and tips around the appropriate support for a grieving person, helping advisers hone their empathy skills to enable deeper engagement with clients, and building greater understanding around the importance of self-care so they can continue to provide quality support to clients and engage effectively.
Additionally, the content will provide licensees with tools and tips to support their advisers and themselves.
