Dissecting Mental Health in the Workplace – Exploring the Triggers and Contributing Factors, Impacts, Strategies and Lessons

Mental health definitely has some traction at the moment in industry but what does it cost? What is the literature telling us that we need to be aware of? How much does it cost? Can it contribute to workplace health and safety performance? Is anxiety or other mental health illness a factor to be considered with workplace incidents or behaviour? If we implement strategies effectively can we see a return on investment?

In this presentation we will take a look at what the current literature is telling us we need to be aware of including reviews and reports conducted by Beyond Blue, UNSW, Black Dog Institute, TNS Global, HSE (UK), Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance, Victorian Workplace Mental Wellbeing Collaboration, and the Australian Human Rights Commission.

The aim is to provide some thought for health and safety practitioners and professionals to consider in enhancing workplace wellbeing going forward.
