Managing a mental health problem like a physical illness just doesn’t work
Most organisations manage mental illness like they do physical illness or injury: give the employee some sick leave; send them to a few EAP sessions; get them back to work on light duties. But this is an overly simplistic approach that can actually make things worse for the individual and expose the organisation to bullying and harassment claims.

“While it’s pleasing to see employee mental health on the executive agenda, strategies to address this problem are often fatally flawed because of one key misunderstanding – mental health problems should not be managed like physical health problems. It’s my mission to help Australia’s boardrooms realise this and to help them think differently about mental health at work.”
-Pedro Diaz, CEO Workplace Mental Health Institute
