The impact of stress and poor mental health
Business in Mind is a workplace mental health promotion program designed for small to medium enterprise owner/managers.
"I had depression for three years before I was diagnosed...I didn't understand what was going on with me." Karl, Accountant
Stress and poor mental health can have enormous organisational, productivity, social and personal costs, yet managers often don't have the knowledge or skills to manage these issues as effectively or as confidently as they could.
"We've had somebody that had the "Black Dog"...it was a learning curve for me.... I wasn't sure what I could do...each of our staff we have are a critical part of the business." Darren, IT company
The Business in Mind DVD and resource kit
Large corporate and public-sector settings often have access to human resource support or employer-sponsored psychological services. Smaller organisations can struggle to access similar supports. The Business in Mind DVD and resource kit was created to help fill this gap.
The Business in Mind research project
In October 2010 a research project was launched to evaluate the effectiveness of the Business in Mind DVD and resource kit. Although the research project is still being completed, new registrations have now closed.
