Employee mental health has become a top priority over the past several years. Depression, anxiety, and other conditions cost the Australian economy between $43 billion to $51 billion per year, with 8 Australians committing suicide each day. Along with the ongoing pressure for productivity, significant organisational change and team redesign, and the impact of psychosocial risk factors inherent in the required work, it’s easy to see why assessing and addressing organisation-specific psychosocial risk factors and promoting good mental health and wellness is at the front and centre of most workplace health strategies. At eN-Action Psychology, we offer tailored psychosocial risk assessments as well as a range of employee mental health support services to help your team enjoy a positive, caring, and productive place of work.
Benefits of Employee Mental Health Support
While many employers offer comprehensive mental health and wellness services including employee assistance programs, not everyone who needs these services use them. In fact, sometimes these services are the wrong fit for the organisation. Understanding your psychosocial risks, mental health and wellness landscape and the drivers for employee health can have a significant impact in helping you to direct your health spend and increasing the return on investment. Here are a few ways of making sure your mental health support services address your risks and improve employee wellbeing.
