Resources for people

When life is unsettled, work can either be a friendly place to find some shoulders to lean on or additional stress to further complicate things. Or maybe a bit of both.

When your mental health is being compromised, it can be hard to let others in – especially those at work if you’re trying to maintain a facade of ‘everything is alright’.

For some, being open about mental health can help the road to recovery.  For others, the stigma is still too much to bear. But we hope that a campaign like Skillness can

start to make inroads into reducing the stigma and opening the  dialogue for people in the workplace.

There are many organisations working directly to impact the effects of mental health in the workplace with strategies from strengthening workplace connections through to education, training and sharing personal stories to demonstrate the growing incidence of mental health conditions, which affect 1 in 5 working Australians.

Below are just a few of the many resources available.
