Poor Mental Health is
$10,000 per employee with Depression
One in ten employees will experience Depression every 12 months. For every ten employees, the cost of Depression to an organisation paying an average salary of $20.00 per hour is just over $10,000 a year.
2 x Psychological injury claims and increased premiums
In the 2018 financial year, the cost of individual workers’ compensation claims ranged from $1389 to $2687. This cost doesn’t take into account either the high human cost nor the strain on company resources.
50% productivity lost
A recent WHO-led study estimates that depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year in lost productivity.
4 days per month in absenteeism
Research done by the U.S. Department of Labour in 2015 predicted that the percent of a company’s staff absent daily was at least 3 percent.

We know mental health so well, we wrote the essential guide for managers
Mental Wealth reveals an approach to workplace mental health and wellbeing that is proven to actually get results.
Despite having a massive impact on the productivity, profitability, and culture of organisations, there is very little guidance currently provided to managers and leaders on how to manage workplace mental health and wellbeing effectively. What does exist often focuses on the legal aspects of minimising risk and misses the psychology of workplace mental health and high performance and ends up creating risk for workplaces.
“It’s so important what you are doing. Because if someone is burnt out, how are they going to address a big challenge that comes their way at work?”

“This is the second time we’ve had a session from the Workplace Mental Health Institute and it definitely won’t be the last. Such an engaging and entertaining presenter, you walk away with a greater sense of your own wellbeing and the tools to help you deal with bumps in the road. We’ve had such wonderful feedback from our team, including that they felt extremely valued as employees”
A Thriving Workplace Culture Is No Accident
Wellbeing happens by design. In organisations where a culture of wellbeing thrives, invariably there’s someone leading and directing the culture of that workplace so that it is one of positive mental health and wellbeing. The good news is that there’s a science to mental health and wellbeing and we know how to make it happen! And that there are measurable core competencies.
