Managing Mental Health in the Workplace Workshop

A mentally healthy workplace is good for business!

With mental illness being one of the leading causes of absenteeism and long-term work incapacity, it is estimated to be costing Australian workplaces around $11 billion each year. At any time, one in six working age people are living with mental illness. Employers can play an active role in maintaining the health and wellbeing of their staff as well as supporting the recovery of employees with mental health problems. A ‘mentally healthy workplace’ is now understood as a key determinant to improving productivity and collective wellbeing.

The Managing Mental Health in the Workplace workshop aims to educate managers and staff on common mental health issues, provide strategies to maintain good health and foster a mentally healthy workplace, and tools to be able to identify and provide assistance to staff and colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health.

Topics include:

  • What is mental health?
  • Identifying some of the most common mental health conditions
  • Statistics and cost of mental health from the individual through to community
  • Environmental factors that can either create or prevent poor mental health
  • Practical strategies and available services for mental health concerns

Useful for:

Line managers, team leaders, human resources officers, wellbeing staff and contact staff in a variety of workplaces.
