Mental health resources for businesses
May 22nd, 2020
Over the past few months the impact of coronavirus has created challenges that employers may never have experienced before. Depending on your business, you and your workers may now be working staggered rosters, performing modified duties on site, or working remotely.
Recent surveys have revealed that isolation, changing circumstances, financial uncertainty, new rules, and alarming media coverage regarding the spread of the virus have left many Australians feeling anxious and overwhelmed.
It’s never been more important to support your staff and help them to look after their health and mental wellbeing, as well as taking time to look after yourself.
Fortunately, there are resources and information available to support you and your staff. These coronavirus-specific resources include:
- Black Dog Institute: resources for managers and workers including 10 tips for managing anxiety and how to support your staff during COVID-19.
- Safe Work Australia: has produced a range of resources to help businesses manage the risks of operating while coronavirus remains a health and safety issue
