Why train your workforce?
Training your workforce to understand and assist people at risk of suicide is vital to maintaining workplace health and safety. Lifeline’s training is an effective way to promote suicide prevention and enhance mental health support services within your business.
Taking a proactive approach to mental health serves to build an organisation’s reputation as an employer of choice, helping them to recruit the best and brightest people.
The cost of mental health problems at work
Untreated mental health conditions cost the economy $11 billion every year – this is even greater when staff turnover, incident claims, insurance payments and the effect upon other employees are considered.
There is a significant return on investment for improving employee wellbeing and mental health, with every dollar invested returning $2.30 in benefit. This is a big bottom-line impact. There are also additional intangible benefits, such as increased engagement and staff retention, strengthening the business case to invest in employees’ mental health.
