Mental health for Business Owners

Running a business can be stressful at times and may bring with it mental health challenges.  Add the additional stresses bought about from the COVID-19 pandemic and the stress levels may be exasperated.  Learning how to create a mentally safe workplace is an important priority for business owners both for their own mental health, and that of their employees. 

Following are links to download evidence-based resources created by the Australian National Health Commission in conjunction with the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance. The easy-to-use guides support the mental health and wellbeing of Australian workers, and encourage mentally healthy workplaces during COVID-19. The guides have been developed for sole traders, small businesses, and large businesses. Topics include;
