How can we help
In Australia, 51 percent of people have left a job because of poor mental health conditions and 40 percent of people have stayed in a job longer because the environment was mentally healthy.
On top of that, 1 in 5 workers experiencing challenges with their mental health each year, more employers than ever are establishing mental health and wellbeing (MH&W) strategies to ensure the mental health of their employees is looked after as well as their physical health.
Workplaces with successful MH&W strategies observe thriving cohorts of staff who are engaged and working cohesively. These employees are less likely to take days off work or seek employment elsewhere and, instead, perform more productively while at work.
Mentally healthy workplaces benefit everyone as employees take their positive mental health back to their families and Australian businesses reduce the huge cost they are paying ($10.9 billion) in untreated mental health conditions every year.
