With 1 in 5 Australians currently experiencing a mental health issue, promoting positive mental health at work should be an essential part of your business strategy. But how mentally healthy is your workplace, really?
Work Options delivers evidence-based educational programs and mental health support services across all staff levels, tailored to alter workplace safety attitude, promote stress-reducing strategies, and encourage mentally-affected workers to stay or return to work, and feel supported and happier.
While 90% of Australian employees think that mental health is an important issue for business, 50% of employers believe that their workplace is not mentally healthy. Is this you? If so, it’s likely that you may be at risk of workplace accidents, absenteeism and presenteeism as a result of poor-mental health, unless you have a strategy in place to manage the adverse affects.
Our qualified mental health experts will work with you to determine the mental health challenges within your workplace, educate managers and supervisors on recognising behaviours associated with poor mental health, and provide evidence-based solutions, strategies and advice to promote a positive shift towards a happy and healthy environment.
And in order to avoid severe outcomes for the business and individual employees, Work Options provides a range of mental health training services to all levels of staff, which educate employees on how to prevent, respond to and assist with poor mental health. We’ve developed hundreds of Mental Health Plans, aligned to specific business needs and circumstances, which are proven to reduce the risk of illness in the workplace, and assist those people to continue to work.
For workers suffering from personal or job-related issues, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is proven to provide positive clinical outcomes, a more productive and happier workforce, and reduced claims cost. Work Options provides EAP services which provide access to confidential counselling sessions, either in person or over the phone, to support workers in the act of balancing work and home life, and puts them on a path towards a positive mindset.
