It takes a whole-team approach to build a mentally healthier, happier city

Every year, mental health issues cost Australian employers more than $12.8b each year in lost productivity.^ When we are mentally healthy, we are more able to work efficiently, show up on time and take fewer sick days. It’s in every employer’s and manager’s interest to foster a healthy, happy workplace, both for the company’s bottom line and for the community in which it operates. This is why we believe businesses are in a position to lead the way when it comes to creating a good culture around mental health, and promoting supportive practices within workforces. Awareness makes taking action much easier.
