Mental Health

Statistics show that implementing policies and mental health training has immediate monetary value – with some Australian industries realising return on investment of up to $15 for every $1 invested in mental health.

Mental health conditions

Leaving mental health issues unaddressed is far more likely to cause real problems. In fact, beyondblue found that untreated mental health conditions cost Australian workplaces approximately $10.9 billion each year. This is made up of $4.7 billion in absenteeism, $6.1 billion in presenteeism and $146 million in compensation claims.

With the additional knowledge that almost half (45%) of Australians will suffer from legitimate mental health issues at some point in their lives, it seems that – despite concerns – addressing employee wellbeing is important and inevitable.

“Almost half (45%) of Australians will suffer from legitimate mental health issues at some point in their lives”

If we find it easy to talk about work performance, why can’t we talk about mental health and staying well at work comfortably? We’re suggesting an overarching shift in the way we approach mental health in the workplace.

A key issue facing organisations which aim to develop a mentally healthy workplace is the disconnect between a leader’s and an employee’s perception of mental health initiatives – whilst 71% of leaders felt that they were committed to promoting the mental health of staff, only 37% of employees agree.

More concerning is the finding that, whilst 57% of leaders felt that they had engaged with employees to provide input into the planning, implementation and review of mental health programs in the workplace, only 25% of employees agreed!

“Sadly, only 37% of the workforce believe that their leadership values or prioritises mental health.”

Caring for staff, giving adequate support and cultivating premium health outcomes through communicative and positive environments will increase the mental health of the workforce.

Courses offered

In the past, there have been limited courses available, so companies often seek these out without considering what they really need for their unique circumstances. Premium Health’s practicing mental health experts guide the implementation of tailored solutions – empowering businesses to be proactive, practice resilience and promote wellness with far-reaching effects.

Our mental health and workplace wellbeing courses led by Mental Health Practitioners not only deliver a successful skillset to attendees, but also have an impact on the wider community. This butterfly effect works for the greater good of Australia, as we strive to make our workplaces, schools and homes safer and mentally healthier.

We Don’t Compromise On Our Training

Earlier this year I performed CPR on my husband. I could not believe how quickly I remembered the timing and because I felt so confident I did not panic.
