Location:Rocklily Restaurant, Brisbane International Hotel Virginia QLD 4014
This event is in the past.
SPEAKER'S TOPIC: Mental Health in the Workplace – it’s everyone’s business.
A mentally well workplace is one that promotes mental health alongside physical health and encourages people to speak up and seek help. With one in five Australian workers experiencing a mental illness and research showing that depression and anxiety are the leading cause of long-term sickness absence in the developed world, this is not a topic to be ignored. There is evidence that people experiencing a mental health problem are more likely to seek professional help if someone suggests it. Do you know the signs and symptoms? Would you know how to approach a person to offer help and where to find support? Tina will be providing facts, tips and recommendations on how to promote and maintain a mentally healthy workplace.

What makes us different?
There are quite a few business networking groups out there. What makes us different? Well, we’re independent - there’s no one at the end of the line taking fees for your attendance. We do have a few simple rules, but we don’t mind breaking them occasionally. We’re dynamic and flexible and we find that this helps grow a strong cooperative environment in which to pass business referrals.
