Next Generation and Your Business – Make your workplace mentally healthy for young employees

Tuesday, 18 February 2020

Does your organisation offer a mentally healthy environment for your younger workers? And how would you know? Find out what factors count so your investment in a mentally healthy workplace is used effectively.

75% of mental illness is first experienced before the age of 25 and the overall cost to the Australian economy of mental health, drug and alcohol issues and suicide is estimated at $43 to $51 billion a year.

How to prevent or intervene early in mental health issues is not a mystery and creating a mentally healthy workplace for the next generation of your workforce will increase productivity and improve retention.

Hear from the experts how your organisation can be on the front foot at this fundraiser breakfast event. It will be moderated by ABC Health Report presenter, Dr Norman Swan and feature a panel of leading mental health experts.
