GLOBAL EXPERTS IN MENTAL HEALTH AND MINDFULNESS UNITE IN FREE LIVE, VIRTUAL EVENTS FOR MENTAL HEALTH WEEK
Growth Faculty has launched a new free event series to help businesses and individuals with tools and strategies for supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
The Impact Series: Mental Health & Wellbeing Week runs from 10-14 October to help organisations provide impactful ideas and tools to support the mental health of employees.
Data from the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare’s 20-2021 Mental Health Services in Australia Report estimates that 1 in 5 (21.4%) of Australians experienced a mental disorder in the previous 12 months, impacting businesses through increased staff leave, staff turnover, workers compensation claims and reduced productivity.
“We’re passionate about upskilling leaders and teams to create healthier workplace cultures and sustainable businesses,” says Karen Beattie, Founder & CEO of Growth Faculty. “Mental health plays a pivotal role in this, and our Impact Series during Mental Health Week will deliver free resources and strategies for individuals and organisations to improve workplace wellbeing.”
To kick things off, Growth Faculty will interview Lucinda Brogden, who until recently was Chair of the National Mental Health Commission and is a carer to her husband; former Premier of New South Wales, John Brogden, to dissect the stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace and what businesses can do about it.
Also in the line-up is Dr Michelle McQuaid, an expert in neuroscience and psychology who was recently named one of LinkedIn’s Top Voices on Mental Health to share advice and tools for building psychologically safe workplaces.
Psychologist Dr Connie Hadley will join from the U.S. to deliver a masterclass in loneliness; how to recognise the warning signs and what employers can do to foster relationships and connection in the workplace.
“A mentally healthy workplace benefits every employee and every company, no matter their size or industry," says Karen Beattie. "Reduced absenteeism, increased productivity and businesses that care about employee wellbeing attract and keep top talent because they’re great places to work.
"Creating a mentally healthy workplace is more than just an obligation, it makes good business sense.”
Growth Faculty’s week of free, live virtual events are open to everyone and runs from 10-14 October 2022. More information.
