Stress and depression in the workplace. Why do we want to talk about it? According to the State of Workplace Mental Health in Australia, one in five Australian employees is likely to be living with a mental health condition, and a whopping 45% of Aussies identify their workplace as a source of stress.
These are issues that we can no longer ignore. It is costing workplaces across the country around $10.9 billion per year (from absenteeism and compensation claims). Three quarters of Australian employees believe workplaces should provide support to someone who is experiencing depression or anxiety. The time is now to open up a real discussion on how we can better support each other in the workplace, and to break down the stigmas of talking about and dealing with mental health issues in the workplace.
Our incredible lineup of speakers will be sharing their stories and advice on how they have come up against and dealt with overcoming stress and depression in the workplace, share how businesses can educate employees and managers alike to widen their acceptance and understanding of others that will contribute to overall better well being for the team. We’ll also be providing some handy tips and collateral from Heads Up to help make accomplishable changes to creating a more mentally healthy workplace.
