Our workplace mental health and wellbeing programs
Depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses are highly prevalent in our society. These conditions are carried into the workplace and contribute to declining morale, underperformance and low productivity for businesses. Mental illness also has profound effects for the individuals suffering and changes their relationship to work. The workplace plays a central role in providing awareness, understanding and support for employees regarding mental health and wellbeing.
The business case for mental health and wellbeing
Depression and anxiety will affect one in six of us at some point during our life and these illnesses are the leading cause of extended sick leave from work.
Mental illness costs the Australian economy somewhere between $10 and $15 billion a year. That's a staggering figure but what also needs to be recognised is that the workplace itself suffers. When there is not adequate awareness and support around issues of mental health and wellbeing, morale in the workplace can be lower, goals and projects delayed, opportunities missed and relationships strained.
Research has shown that evidence based workplace interventions can play a significant role in reversing those losses, with every $1 spent on effective mental health actions returning an average of $2.30 in benefits to the organisation.
