These days we are all so much more aware of our mental health than we have been in the past.
But are you aware of the facts and statistics of mental health in Australia?
Fly-in, fly-out workers from remote mining and construction sites, and offshore locations are at a higher risk of suffering from a mental health condition than those in the general community.
Long absences from family and friends, and working in remote and often harsh environments can lead to mental health issues, breakdown of relationships, substance abuse and unfortunately in some cases, suicide.
It’s important for employers to invest in mental health programs to help reduce stigma, create a positive environment, help raise awareness and focus on early intervention/ prevention strategies, improve productivity and engagement of employees and to reduce costs and risks associated with employee absenteeism.
Healthforce_Group along with assistance from Rural and Remote Mental Health are happy to provide workshops on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, providing you with the information and resources required to be able to assist those who may be experiencing a mental health condition.
