Mental Health Training

Mental wellbeing is a major challenge for the Australian community and Australian business.

Among advanced economies, Australia has among the highest rates of depression, anxiety, chronic substance misuse, self-harm (and suicide) and other stress-related disorders.

Work stress, demanding workloads, exposure to trauma, excessive hours, failings in organisational culture and work systems, and poor interpersonal relationships (bullying, intimidation, harassment) are strongly identified with the development and incidence of these disorders.

Failure to recognise and correctly manage this risk is bad for morale, bad for workplace relationships and bad for business. It also risks exposure to adverse action under The Fair Work Act (2009) and the Work Health and Safety Act (2011).

But a business that protects and promotes mental health, through its culture, management practices and policies and through the values it projects is more productive.

The “happiness quotient” is a bottom-line issue
