Mental Illness is one of the leading causes of sickness absence and long term work incapacity, costing Australian businesses approximately $11 billion every year.
The good news is that the majority of mental illness in the workplace is treatable and in some cases may even be preventable.
According to a 2016 survey on Mental Health in the Workplace undertaken by Minter Ellison, it identified that nearly 95% of survey respondents had at least 1 instance of their staff presenting with mental health issues in the last 12 months.
Businesses regardless of size or industry are likely to face mental health issues among their workforce. Cartec has developed our Mental Health Model to enable you and your organisation to manage mental health in a proactive and holistic manner.
