If you answered “no” to any of these questions, it’s time to consider a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course. In addition to the human cost of poor mental health, this condition is costing your business money and putting people and the business at risk.
The Productivity Commission, in 2020, estimated that poor mental health, in the form of lost productivity, absence and presenteeism, costs Australian workplaces $17B pa. Other impacts on the workplace include conflict, turnover, errors, potential workplace injury or aggravation, consumption of excessive leader time, poor morale and reputational damage.
A Mental Health First Aid course equips you to identify the signs that someone is struggling and provides you with the competence, confidence and courage to have a wellbeing conversation with them.
Mental illness is treatable yet 50% of people with a common mental illness don’t access help. They are more likely to do so when someone they know suggests it. This is where you can make a difference. Help from you, or another workplace Mental Health First Aider, can expedite people getting the help they need and returning to full health and performance.
