Helping you create a supportive workplace
Did you know that 1 in 5 Australians at any given time experience the symptoms of a mental health issue*?
Mental health issues can affect people in every workplace. Often the symptoms are first recognised at work, where daily pressures and stresses can have an amplifying effect. We often find it easier to understand physical health issues, and struggle to understand mental health issues.
Understanding the signs and symptoms of mental health issues can help employers assist employees to return to their usual performance and productivity, and can also help in providing support to customers/clients who may be showing signs of mental health issues.
Mentis Assist's Mental Health Awareness training programs can help employers to recognise symptoms, respond to incidents, and create a supportive work environment that enables employees to return to their usual performance avoiding greater problems.
