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 employee 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.
Employers have many expectations on creating and maintaining a mentally healthy workplace. But we also know that running a business is hard work and there are many things you have to worry about. The past few years have seen a significant rise in psychological distress amongst workers. We understand managing this can be overwhelming, confusing and, if ignored, can cost you greatly.
That’s why we want to relieve you from the stress of worrying about this issue and free you up to focus on what you do best. Our digital platform Navigate Mental Health© allows you to identify at risk workers and provide support, without the need to be a counsellor!
The key principle of the Navigate Mental Health© program is early intervention and prevention through screening, education, self-directed learning and support, and employee counselling.
With a mentally healthy workplace your business will have less absenteeism, reduced turnover, higher productivity and keep valued employees in your business: keeping profits in your pocket.

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 effects.
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 employees, 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.
