The suicide prevention charity RUOK Day gets the conversation started about Mental Health and that can save lives. At wattsnext we see how common mental health challenge are in the workplace every-day. These silent battles are playing out in the people around us on a daily basis and we must not ignore it.
The roller coaster of small business places owners and executives at very high risk and as a HR Consultancy (and business also owners) we see and experience this first hand.
The mental health statistics are downright horrifying and rarely detectable to the eye
‘1 in 6 Australian’s are currently experiencing depression or anxiety or both’
The tragic loss of Danny Frawley a much loved AFL and commentary legend in Melbourne this week is a stark reminder that mental health challenges do not discriminate.
Suicide is a major public health issue that kills more than 3,000 Australians in a typical year, you can literally save lives by starting a conversation with someone this week
Thursday the 12th of September is RUOK Day and a great reminder to check-in with your colleagues and mates. At wattsnext we will be wearing yellow, having a morning tea and genuinely listening to the answer of RUOK?
This is my attempt to reach out to as many people this week as I can and I urge you to do the same!
Let’s make it a habit
