Stop work related stress from taking a toll
Mental health conditions affect one in five Australians so it's possible there are people in your workplace who are experiencing conditions such as depression and anxiety.
Untreated mental health conditions have an impact on workplaces and individuals and the cost to Australian workplaces has been estimated at $11 billion per year, through reduced productivity, absenteeism and work injury claims.¹
