Supporting healthier minds: Mental health and wellbeing seminars

People in seminar with hands in the air for questions
As we develop a deeper understanding of the physical and psychological effects of work related stress, many businesses are seeking to provide more supportive environments for their employees.

Work related stress is a known contributor to the development of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, burn out and fatigue, as well as contributing to reduced levels of physical health such as cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome.

Safe Work Australia data indicates that workers’ compensation claims for mental stress are the most expensive due to the duration of absences from work.

Workplace benefit:

These sessions are designed to encourage empathy, open lines of communication and facilitation of strong and positive social connections.
