Mental health in the workplace 

HRATA are proud to present Mr Craig Semple



Businesses that actively promote good mental health attract and retain top talent because they’re great places to work…

Craig Semple was a career Detective within the NSW Police Force for 25 years until his retirement, at the rank of Detective Sergeant, in 2013.

Much of Craig’s career was invested in `high risk’ environments including drug investigation and the investigation of outlaw motorcycle gangs. It was in these environments that Craig developed lifelong skills in Leadership, Effective Communication, Emotional Intelligence, Conflict Resolution and Risk Management.

In 2015 Craig joined the Black Dog Institute as an Educational Presenter. Since then he has travelled extensively, sharing his experience and delivering vital education on Mental Health, Wellbeing and Resilience.

Craig presents his lived experience and his personal insight into the causes, symptoms, treatment and the impact of mental health and stress in the workplace. More than 4,000 High School Students, Teachers, Farmers, Police and Emergency Services in New South Wales have benefited from Craig’s positive presentations which focus on Psychological Wellbeing and Building Resilience.
