Who takes this course?
According to recent studies, organisations that don’t prioritise mental health “have a threefold increased risk” of their full-time employees being diagnosed with depression. In fact, it’s estimated that 45% of Australians have experienced a mental health condition in their lifetime.
That’s why workplace anxiety, bullying or dissatisfaction can have a major impact on a person’s mental health and can impact a person’s job performance.
Workplace anxiety, bullying or dissatisfaction can have a major impact on a person’s mental health. Even issues outside the workplace can impact a person’s job performance.
All in all, poor mental health can affect:
- Morale/general wellbeing
- Employee attendance

In order to prevent these issues, it’s important that all workplaces, regardless of industry, implement strategies for early intervention.
