In any year 20% of the Aussie population will be suffering from a mental health issue
Because mental health issues affect 20% of the population in any one year, businesses annually lose over 6 million working days. As well as this, mental health conditions can be debilitating for sufferers. It takes a huge toll on family and work life. However, early intervention can help prevent the condition from worsening.
Raising awareness of mental health issues helps to remove stigmas. It helps foster an open and supportive environment where people feel more at ease talking about their problems. Most people in the workplace simply would not know how to approach a person to ask about mental wellbeing or what they could do to help. Our courses will give you all the skills and confidence you need to step in to support colleagues or loved ones.
