As Australia’s largest employment sector, small to medium enterprises are an important setting for a focus on mental health and wellbeing. As a result, managers and leaders within this sector are uniquely placed to play an important role in supporting the growth of a mentally healthy and resilient workforce. We know that more than four million people experience mental ill-health each year, and almost half the population has experienced a mental illness at some time in their life.
With untreated mental health conditions costing the Australian economy more than $12 billion per year, it has never been more important to learn how to communicate, discuss, support, and improve mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
This expert-led virtual workshop bundle will support managers and leaders to increase their understanding of the key concepts of mental health. It will also teach them supportive strategies and best practices in recognising, addressing, and supporting those experiencing mental ill-health in the workplace.
As a leader, it can be tempting to focus time and attention on the day to day operations of a small to medium enterprise. However, one of the most important resources within that operation is actually you and your staff. The healthier and more resilient you and your team are, the healthier a business has the chance to be.
