Mental health

Recent research from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that almost half of the Australian workforce will be affected by mental health issues at some point in their lives. With 450 million reported cases of mental health issues across the globe, it’s one of the world’s most prevalent health concerns.

But despite efforts in recent years to normalise discussions on the matter, many businesses retain a reactive stance – waiting until incidents occur before taking action and providing support.

Proactive workplace mental health and wellbeing training is urgently needed in the Australian workforce, and has the capacity to empower workforces to have conversations and address issues - before it’s too late.

“For every $1 invested in mental health, Australian businesses welcome a $2.30 return.” - PWC

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.

Only half of the Australian workforce (56%) believe that their leadership values or prioritises mental health. This disconnect between what leaders may think their perspective is on mental health and what employees receive encourages a greater prioritisation of proactive solutions.

Caring for staff, giving adequate support and cultivating premium health outcomes through communicative and positive environments will reduce stress, increase productivity, improve relations and reduce absenteeism.


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.

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.
