About the Course

Research has revealed one in 5 employees has a mental health condition of some sort, and at least 50% of all Australians will be diagnosed with a mental health condition at some time in their life.

There are legal obligations employers must now fulfill to ensure not only the physical safety of their workforce, but their mental (or psychological) safety as well.

Moreover, the PwC report of 2014 revealed that, on average, for every dollar a business invests in mental health initiatives for their staff, there is an ROI of $2.30 to be gained.

Who Will Benefit

  • Leaders from all industry sectors
  • HR, L&D and OH&S professionals
  • Executives and Managers responsible for the productivity and well-being of  their staff
  • Senior employees who are keen to lead the movement towards a psychologically safer workplace
