Mental health in the workplace.

45% of Australians between the ages of 16 and 85 will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime and untreated mental health conditions cost businesses $10.9 billion a year in absenteeism, presenteeism and compensation.

Employees who consider their workplace mentally unhealthy are almost four times more likely to say they have taken time off work due to feeling mentally unwell compared with those who consider their workplace mentally healthy. This shows that building a mentally healthy workplace is essential for both employees and employers.

This infographic outlines three steps that business owners can follow to build a mentally healthy workplace, reducing employee absence and ensuring compliance to WHS legislation.
