Why is Workplace Wellness Important?

1 in 5 Australians are experiencing a mental health condition right now and almost half of all Australians aged between 16 and 85 years old will experience a mental illness at some point in their lifetime. These figures are set to rise - by 2030, mental illness will be the number one health concern globally.  

Workplace mental health is a major issue. Each year, more than 6 million working days are lost and 12 million days of reduced productivity are caused by untreated depression alone.  Mental health conditions cost Australian employers $11- $12 billion annually as a result of:

  • Workforce Turnover

  • Absenteeism;

  • Reduced Productivity; &

  • Compensation Claims

Mentally unhealthy workplaces impact staff morale, productivity, engagement, loyalty and put the organisation at increased risk of high turnover and worker’s compensation claims being made. Workplace culture impacts an organisations reputation with prospective clients, customers and employees.


In order to prevent negative personal and economic outcomes, your workplace has a role to play in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of your employees.  Research shows effective workplace wellbeing initiatives yield a positive return on investment

“Investing in mental wealth is not only good for society, it’s good for business. Australian companies can reap $2.30 for every $1 spent on workplace mental health strategies.”                                                                                                           -PwC & Beyond Blue (2014)

Damien Burke (Director of Focused Mental Education Pty Ltd) speaking with SafeWork NSW
Creating a Mentally Healthy Workplace

"To achieve a mentally healthy workplace, employers, leaders and workers should  consider mental health in the management of workplace risks, when they develop and implement policies and processes, and in the education, training and support services they provide their workers – as is already commonplace for physical health and safety."
