Anna Feringa is someone I’ve admired for many years now with her ability to unpack complex psychological concepts and break them down into actionable insights for leaders and employees alike. The work she has done in an advisory capacity and her specialist roles within the insurance sector places her a rare nexus point to support those organisations wanting to move the conversation forward, and past 'awareness'.
“Anna has been working with our business for 2 years, providing Mental Health First Aid Training for our clients. She has been a fantastic support to our business, improving our clients’ knowledge base in this space which has resulted in a tangible benefit as our clients feel confident putting their learning into practice to drive a mentally safe workplace.
Anna has made Workplace Mental Health training simple, practical and applicable. She is easy to work with and her service ethic is impeccable, we have consistently received positive feedback from clients who attended her training. I would recommend Anna to any workplace that wants Mental Health management made easy and practical."
“Western Bulldogs were recently lucky enough to have had an incredibly insightful presentation around mental health from Anna Feringa. The feedback from the staff has been outstanding especially on the way Anna engaged with all the staff and provided key learnings on tools that we can all use day to day to help staff who are in need of support. We have already had discussions around how the mental health session we had with Anna could also be linked in our Sons of the West and Daughters of the West health program. I couldn’t recommend the opportunity of having Anna coming to speak to your organisation more highly.”
“Anna at EML has helped the Blood Service to develop a best practice guide for how to identify and manage team members experiencing mental health incidents. Every employer will have employees that suffer significant mental health challenges from time to time and we are no different. Where Anna has assisted is to ensure that when this happens in our organisation we have a clear, best practice protocol that ensure the employees are given the best support possible and that managers have clarity about their role and our expectations. Anna has also provided training across the organisation to team leaders about how to have the R U Ok conversations and where necessary to use the protocol that has built confidence, trust and capability for mental health management across the organisation. I would recommend this service to anyone who would like their managers to feel competent and capable in understanding and managing mental health.”
