At least forty-five per cent of Australians will experience a mental health issue during their lifetime. So, the likelihood that one or more of your workers know someone who’s showing signs of a mental health disorder, or are personally suffering from one, is high.
Mental health issues can range from anxiety, to mood disorders, eating disorders and personality disorders, to schizophrenia. Offering support to workers who might be suffering from mental health issues is a potentially sensitive topic for a manager or worker to discuss. But with a large percentage of our lives spent at work, it’s clearly important to feel as secure and supported in our work-life, as we do in our personal life. Having connections with our work colleagues is a valuable aspect of our lives, when issues such as loneliness can significantly contribute to depression and other debilitating mental health issues.
